The Village Voice's Neil deMause is liveblogging the hearings about the financing of the new Yankee Stadium. Representative Dennis Kucinich has suggested that the $924 million the Yankees got in tax-exempt bonds may have been improper, hence these hearings. According to the Voice, Kucinich just said the Yankees withheld documents--requested in July--until Wednesday and says this is "evidence they don't want the truth to come out." In other Bombers' big money news, the Daily News' Mike Lupica suggests the Yankees will spend more crazy amounts to get talent so they can win 90 games in the new stadium.
