This is why I love Hank Steinbrenner
Steinbrenner told Newsday he expects the Yankees’ offer – top pitching prospect Phil Hughes, outfielder Melky Cabrera, and another prospect – to trump whatever the Sox place on the table.
“I think our offer is the best offer,” Steinbrenner told the newspaper.
“We have the best young pitchers in the game, even better than Boston.”
For those who say the Red Sox are the new Yankees… this is why that will never be the case. The arrogance here is striking. And we can’t match it, nor will we ever. And that’s why we’ll never be the Yankees, as big-headed and obnoxious as we get.
