Please Stop Speaking, Hank Steinbrenner


I thought the media made it clear they had very little interest in what Hank Steinbrenner has to say. Perhaps I was wrong.

This week's outspoken comment came in the form of an insult, I guess? Steinbrenner apparently wasn't pleased with Jonathon Papelbon's recent pencil-pushing comment.
"Being insulted by Papelbon is like being attacked by a mouse."
Well... what if the mouse was rabid? Pretty sure that can kill a person.

In response to that ludicrous comparison, Paps said, "Whatever dude."

But that's not all! Now Hank is attacking the Tampa Bay Rays. You know, the new bullies of the AL East? Yeah.

He has officially declared shenanigans on the Rays for "going after [the Yankees'] star players" like superstar... Shelly Duncan? And of course, since Mini-Stein's douchebagginess knows no bounds, he managed to make this about money.

"I would prefer if teams want to target the Yankees that they at least start giving some of that revenue sharing and luxury tax money back. From an owners point of view, that's my point."

As a Yanks fan I've so missed George's outbursts at random people. But Hank didn't learn an important lesson. He's only supposed to blow up the guys that play on his own team.And if he'd really been channeling George he'd of just called him "that closer guy for that team in Boston".

Dude, rabies can totally kill you. Mice also carry other nasty diseases. So THERE Hank!

He's awesome for the print media, online oulets and blogs; however, he's doing himself a disservice by continuously opening his mouth.

I'd never imagine him to be worse than his father, but he's coming close.

The good thing is that he's more funny than offensive right now.

Watch out! Looks like he's about to tug on the Papelboner!
