Hank's 10 Year Plan

Posted on: June 3, 2008 12:45 am
 

From Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record:

Hank Steinbrenner phoned back after the game, and he didn't call to vent about the frustrating loss here in Minneapolis.

I'd left a message earlier to speak with him about Joba Chamberlain finally moving into the rotation, and in a very direct, but calm voice, he talked about the long-term direction of the Yankees - and how Chamberlain is one of the cornerstones of that view.

"This is about what Joba can do for us over the next 10 years. That's what we're going to look at in a lot of way, with the new dynasty, hopefully, we can build.''

And he's buying into tonight's hype. "I know the media live day by day,'' Steinbrenner said of events such as these. "That's not my problem and that's not Brian's (Cashman) problem. That's your guys (media's) problem.

"We just have to build what the Yankees should be for now...and also for the future,'' Hank said. "I really think we'll still go on a tear.''

Hank's 10 Year Plan

Hank your stupid knowing you soon as the yankees miss the playoffs with an record of 85-77 or 86-76 you going to try and fire Girardi

You have nothing to back that up, let's wait and see. Hopefully he won't have even the smallest reason to fire him.

Cashmen should be fired for not keeping Vizcaino and for signing Latroy Hawkins.

Ask SCP about this. He was ticked off about Vizcaino too, but the fact is that he's been injured and I think may still be on the DL. About signing LaTrash, that's 100% inexcusable. Everyone knew that it was a terrible signing before he did it.

Hank's 10 Year Plan

What I really like about these comments --if he means what he says-- is that he seems committed to Cashman's plan of nurturing the kids instead of going out and signing the high priced free agent busts.

"This is about what Joba can do for us over the next 10 years. That's what we're going to look at in a lot of way, with the new dynasty, hopefully, we can build.''

This shows me that while he wants to win as much as his dad does, he understands the route that needs to be taken.

 "I know the media live day by day,'' Steinbrenner said of events such as these. "That's not my problem and that's not Brian's (Cashman) problem. That's your guys (media's) problem."

What can I do, but smile at such a statement?

Hank your stupid knowing you soon as the yankees miss the playoffs with an record of 85-77 or 86-76 you going to try and fire Girardi when its not his fault that soon as the season finished last year you said Joba will move into the rotation next year. Cashmen should be fired for not keeping Vizcaino and for signing Latroy Hawkins.
