Hankenstein still an idiot

Hankenstein spouted off again Saturday, proving once again that he is a blustering moron.

“There is one very important point here,” Steinbrenner told The Post during an exclusive half-hour session. “The most important thing to remember is this: If you didn’t get it from me or my brother [Hal], it doesn’t mean [anything]. I don’t care about some piss-ant employee. If you don’t get it from me or Hal, it’s meaningless. I have a lot of things [in Tampa] and Hal is in New York, which is good.”

“Some piss-ant employee?” Are you kidding me? Does that include GM Brian Cashman? And, even if it doesn’t that sure isn’t any way to inspire people. I wish this idiot would go away, but — of course — we know he won’t.

  • The Yankees will reportedly discuss changes to their coaching staff. I hope that means the useless third base coach Bobby Meacham is gone. I’m not so sure bench coach Rob Thomson helps much, either.
  • Newsday has an interesting comparison of the young players who have come out of the Yankee and Red Sox farm systems the past few seasons. Kudos to ‘Was Watching.’
  • Joe Torre won’t say much about the way he was pushed out of New York. His brother, Frank, has said it for him.

“I wonder what the Yankees are thinking now while they’re fishing or doing whatever,” Frank Torre said on the field at Citizens Bank Park before Game 2 of the NLCS, as quoted by USA Today. “I have friends there. I will always root for Derek Jeter. But what they did to my brother was not right. Really, it was pathetic what they did. There was no class.

“I hear Hank Steinbrenner say, ‘Where would Joe Torre be without the Yankees?’ Well, let me tell you, Hank Steinbrenner was fortunate he was born in the Steinbrenner family. His inheritance is a whole lot bigger now than it would have been if not for my brother. I think he gained a lot more money than my brother after all of those World Series.

“My brother won’t say anything, but he was hurt.”

  • Here’s an interesting thought from Buster Olney. He says the Yanks should seriously consider signing free agent second baseman Orlando Hudson, a defensive whiz, and solve their first base issue by moving Robinson Cano there. It’s an intriguing idea. What do you guys think?

    Hmm…I really don’t have a problem with Cano at 2B besides his lack of intensity. I’m not sure that bringing in a 34 year old guy with a .322 career OBP is a great idea with the lack of offense in the current lineup. That sounds like the kind of free agent mistake that you have previously written about that litters the Yankees past. I’d rather see them get an OFer with some chops and move Damon/Matsui to 1st.

    Here’s something I’ve been thinking about per the bench coach sitiuation. I was shocked this past year to hear Paul O’Neill talk about being a clubhouse leader. He said that he really didn’t do as much as the press or fans thought he did, and that Tino Martinez was the real “fire” in the clubhouse. He said Tino never confronted anyone in public, but in the clubhouse he would (figuratively) kick some ass. I was shocked to hear that! Sounds like a a guy that the Yankees could use on the coaching staff. Sometimes it is not appropriate for a Manager to get in his players faces. A stern, but well-liked bench coach could help out a lot in some situations.

    Plus Tino is a HUGE fan favorite. Another tie to the glory years. I’d love to see him on the Yankees bench next to Joe G next season. Now I have no idea what he is currently doing. I heard a while ago that he was helping out his brother or brother in-law with coaching a high school or college team down in Florida, so I could be talking out of my ass.

    Wouldn’t be the first time that happened. ;)

    I would love Tino on the coaching staff. Hell, I think he might make a good GM someday. Someone on that staff needs to get after certain players, I know that much. Right now they don’t have anybody who can, or will, including the manager.

    Thomson and Meachump have got to go.
