They failed to realize that in 2011, NY isn't a college town. Therefore these bowl games don't sell out.

They would have made more money hosting a WC.
The pinstripe bowl game is a 4 or 5 year deal. If the Yankees decided not to host the PS bowl with the goal of hosting the winter classic instead, they would be passing up on 4-5 years of guaranteed revenue for just the possibility of attaining one year of revenue. Remember that It's not a guarantee that they would host the classic, so what would happen if they decided not to have the PS bowl and didn't get the Winter Classic? That would be a bad business decision. We know that the Yankees are all about money, so what do you think they would do?
