While we had our own brand of excitement at RAB this afternoon, nothing happened in Yankeeland, and it is more and more likely that nothing will happen until next week. Fun times.
Meanwhile, in summarizing up the nothing, Peter Abraham highlighted an interesting quote from the AP by Hank Steinbrenner:
“What we’re looking for is a guy that’s maybe going to be one of the greatest managers, maybe, of all-time, over a period of 10, 20 years, who knows?”
Now without getting into the utter absurdity of such a statement or the argument over whether or not Torre should be managing the Yanks in 2008, doesn’t Steinbrenner realized they just fired a guy who was one of the greatest managers, maybe, of all-time over a period of 12 years? Does he know that these guys don’t grow on trees? Just wondering if anyone’s pointed that out to him.
