The New York Yankees seem to have entered a new era of mediocrity with very little fanfare. As they go into the All-Star break 3 games under .500, it is fair to ask where is the loud-mouthed, overbearing, grandstanding Steinbrenner of old? In the last two years, there have been very few sightings and only the occasional remark about his beloved team. It has been neither confirmed nor denied that Steinbrenner, who turns 77 this week, may be suffering from dementia and is being kept out of the public eye by family and his handlers. It is hard to believe that it is merely the mellowing of an old man not to be speaking out on his struggling team. That said, who is running the team??
