A Chip Off the Old Blockhead
And the Steinbrenner family seemed to have behaved so well for the past several years.
Now these comments from Hank Steinbrenner, son of George Steinbrenner, managing general partner of the group that owns the New York Yankees. Hank, apparently, is about to take over the reins from his father.
On Alex Rodriguez leaving the Yankees:
"It's clear he didn't want to be a Yankee. He doesn't understand the privilege of being a Yankee on a team where the owners are willing to pay $200 million to put a winning product on the field."
"I don't want anybody on my team that doesn't want to be a Yankee."

On Joe Torre:
"Where was Joe's career in '95 when my dad hired him? My dad was crucified for hiring him. Let's not forget what my dad did in giving him that opportunity — and the great team he was handed."
