Hank Steinbrenner spoke to the media gathering at Legends Field.
Via the AP, I heard his comments. The basics: They’re still in the decision-making process and no news is expected until after the weekend. It’s up to Brian Cashman, although the family still has a say.
Then there was this gem:
“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?”
One of the greatest managers of all time for a decade? In his spare time the guy can cure cancer, negotiate peace in the Middle East and solve global warming. Holy cow.
Steinbrenner also wants somebody who will, “take charge and be a real leader.”
As somebody who needs to write a story for tomorrow’s paper, keep talking Little Stein. It beats those statements from Howard Rubenstein.
