Little Stein: Get ’em next year

Here’s some of what Hank Steinbrenner told the AP today:

“They’ve got to play smarter and harder. The injuries – when you’re missing Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada, that makes it tough. The injuries make a huge difference. At the same time, you’ve got to get it done. We still have plenty of good hitters. We need to get the job done.

“No question, the Rays are a hungry team. That’s what our team has to get back.”

Hank is considering coming to New York for the Subway Series. The object of his desire, Johan Santana, is pitching for ther Mets on Friday.

“To me, it’s not any added significance because Santana is pitching. We want to win, it’s that simple,” Steinbrenner said. “We’re both kind of struggling. We just need to win. They just need to win. We just need to keep putting wins in the win column. We’ve got to start racking up some runs.”

“We’re going to do everything we can turn to it around this year. I guarantee we’ll get this thing straight next year.”

Next year? The co-chairperson of the Yankees is talking about next year when they’re 4.5 games out on May 14? That’s stunning.

Here’s the AP story.
