That would be a bad business decision. We know that the Yankees are all about money, so what do you think they would do?
I think they underestimated the Winter Classic gate ($8-9MM) vs. a college football game. Not to mention publicity. the Yankees aren't dumb. I could easily see the Pinstripe Bowl being farmed out to Met Life for a season.
