Yankees Young Pitchers Down the Road; Hal, Not Hank

Thanks to regular reader Mike F. for sending this very good piece from Cliff Corcoran of Bronx Banter along to me.  Corcoran makes a good case that the Yankees’ rotation, and to no small degree its bullpen, by 2011 may be primarily stocked with home-grown talent.  Check it out.

Thank goodness Dad has the good sense and foresight to see which of his two Steinbrenner sons is best equipped to run the Yankees organization.  Now that it’s been officially approved by MLB, congratulations Hal.  You’re the right guy for the job.  I’m so glad it isn’t that loudmouth, blustery frat-boy Hank the court jester.

  1. I’m not so sure the court jester was ever really in danger of “being in charge.” Supposedly, he and Hal are “co-chairs.” Which means Hank will continue to spout off whenever he feels like it, but it’ll be a consortium making the decisions. I just hope they’re the right ones.

  2. It didn’t seem to clear to me who would hole the reins of power, Jane. I was glad that Hal had the financial side under control, and think that he is clearly the better, saner head for the organization in the future. Hank is nothing more than a spoiled frat boy, a Billy Carter type, but less well-read.
