Little Stein: It’s transition time

Hammerin’ Hank Steinbrenner spoke to reporters down in Tampa again today. After years in the background, turns out he’s Regis.

On a new manager: “I think the most important thing is, whoever we hire, give him a chance. Because he’s not getting the ’96 Yankees. He’s getting a younger team, and for the most part, it’s a transition period, so give him a little while.”

OK, so the new guy should get a chance because it’s a transition period. But Joe Torre had to get to the World Series.

I can respect the idea that they wanted Torre out. I subscribe to the idea that change can be good. But why didn’t they just say, “Joe, we want to make a change. Thanks for everything.” Why did they go through the whole thing of pretending to want him?

The Hank n’ Hal Yankees should be quite a time.

Meanwhile, Little Stein admitted they were down to three candidates and that a decision should come soon.
