It looks like the Yanks forgot to pay the rent. According to a rather boring and technical audit — aren’t they all like that? — by New York City Comptroller William Thompson (available here as a PDF), the Yankees misreported some attendance, revenue sharing and cable numbers. As a result, the team owes the city $11 million in Yankee Stadium back rent. The Yanks do not dispute these findings — which include some lofty numbers on concession sales — and have submitted $7 million to the city. The rest the team will fork over in March. It looks like in the midst of a financial crisis, New York City is going to crack down on delinquent bills.
