Juan Gone is playing fast and loose with the numbers. His claim of fraud in this case is not true.

His gripe is the land for the new Stadium is being falsely valued higher than the land nearby, leading to a tax break for the Yankees. You do not have to be Warren Buffet to figure out land with Yankee Stadium on it is worth more than land across the street with a sports bar on it. He is pandering to his base.

There are plenty of reasons to take issue with the new Stadium but this is not one of them. He should stick to the issue of replacement of lost parkland.
