Commodus Steinbrenner    

Hank Steinbrenner is back in the news, and he now apparently is spokesman for not only the Yanks, but the Twins as well.

>>>After what he described as a "slow holiday season" for baseball business, Hank Steinbrenner is returning to his office Thursday to begin working on "a final decision" regarding a trade for Johan Santana. And he believes the Yankees have made the top offer for the Minnesota ace.
"I think the Twins realize our offer is the best one," Steinbrenner said Wednesday in a telephone interview. "I feel confident they're not going to trade him before checking with us one last time and I think they think we've already made the best offer."
Steinbrenner said the offer "does not include two of the three young pitchers" - Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy, from a group that also includes untouchable Joba Chamberlain - "but it's still the best one. And let's face it, we're the best able to handle the kind of contract (extension) Santana will be after."<<<

Easy, big guy, maybe you should stop talking for a while. Lesson # fucking 1 in business is that every interaction with the media is an opportunity for messaging. In the words of Ricky Roma, you never open your mouth unless you know what the shot is. The only messages he's sending here are: 1) He pretends to know what is best for the Twins; and 2) He's a fuckwit. If I'm the Twins GM, I deal with the Sox exclusively from now on, just to blow one giant raspberry at this obnoxious, self-centered dbag. And I even LIKED Hank for a while. That day is over. From now on, he's Commodus. Here's your uniform, asshole:
