Hank comes out hammering

Hank Steinbrenner is sounding a lot like his father these days.

"It's clear he didn't want to be a Yankee," Hank Steinbrenner told the Daily News last night. "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." (New York Daily News)


Alex Rodriguez's departure will most likely hurt the lineup this year. In the long run, however, this is probably the best thing that could have happened to the Yankees.

Since constructing the all-star lineup, the Yankees have only gotten out of the Division Series once. They've strayed away from what won them those four championships all those years ago.

It's time to get back to building the team as a team, not as a collection of all-stars. The Yankees have a chance to return to greatness without Rodriguez.

ESPN Radio 1050 is reporting that the Yankees have offered Joe Girardi the managerial job. If this turns out the be true, the Yankees have started the offseason on the right foot. Next comes re-signing Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada.

The lineup takes a major hit, but Brian Cashman has more money to play with as a result. I have faith that he will build a solid team for this season. We are on the verge of a new era in the Bronx. Hopefully it's as successful as the previous one.

What words o' wisdom do you have for poor Scott Proctor, now that Torre is likely to be headed to the Dodgers?

I feel terribly for him. He doesn't deserve that kind of abuse.
