Hal Steinbrenner plans to lower Yankees' payroll
Hal Steinbrenner plans to lower New York Yankees' payroll over next few years
By The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) ' New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner says it's his goal to lower the team's payroll to $189 million over the next few years.

Under baseball's new labor contract, the luxury tax threshold will be at $189 million after the 2013 season.

Said Steinbrenner on Thursday: "Is it a requirement with baseball that we hit 189? No, it's not a requirement, but that is going to be the luxury tax threshold and that's where I want to be. I don't think it's an unrealistic goal."



Steinbrenner said this season's payroll is around $210 million.

The Yankees were hit with a $13.9 million luxury tax for last season. New York's final 2011 payroll was $212.7 million.
