Go Yanks!

Turns out there are some locals who love Yankees--the New York Yankees, that is. Says here that German construction company Hochtief AG (gesundheit) today got the contract to build the Yanks' new stadium in the Bronx. Actually, its U.S. unit got the bid: Dallas-based Turner Corp., which will build the 50,800-seat stadium for developer Tishman Speyer. It's supposed to be done in time for the 2009 season, when the Texas Rangers are expected to miss the playoffs yet again. The deal's worth about $615 million, or close to what Tom Hicks is paying A-Rod to play in the Bronx. --Robert Wilonsky
