Hot Air from the South

Can someone please tell Hank Steinbrenner to stop trying to be like his Dad back in the latter's heyday? Seriously. The clown prince is just making a fool of himself and the organization with his hollow statements.

Hank's latest bit of hot air takes a shot at MLB and Joe Torre. He blames the divisional set up for the Yankees not making the playoffs, and also uses it as an excuse as to why the Torre-led Dodgers, in all likelihood, will make it to the post-season.
"The biggest problem is the divisional setup in major league baseball. I didn't like it in the 1970s, and I hate it now," Steinbrenner wrote in the Sporting News. "Baseball went to a multidivision setup to create more races, rivalries and excitement. But it isn't fair. You see it this season, with plenty of people in the media pointing out that Joe Torre and the Dodgers are going to the playoffs while we're not. This is by no means a knock on Torre - let me make that clear-but look at the division they're in. If L.A. were in the AL East, it wouldn't be in the playoff discussion. The AL East is never weak."
Hank, grow a set, please.
