Hank Steinbrenner said the following in an interview with the Sporting News about why he was angry with the Mitchell Report:
“Don’t make any mistake about it: Our team in the late 90s beat everybody, and we beat everybody because we were that much better than everybody,” he said. “And they had just as many players doing stuff — all the teams. I guarantee you go through every team in baseball, and they all have the same basic percentage of players doing stuff. They just weren’t as good as us. You think the Red Sox didn’t have players doing stuff back then? Give me a … break. They just weren’t as good as us, and neither was anybody else.”
The more Hank opens his mouth the more reason people have to hate the Yankees, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
