Pap vs. Mr. Hankee

You knew he wouldn't remain quiet for much longer.

Hank Steinbrenner (pictured) has been shooting his mouth off again about the Red Sox, and this time he's gotten into a pissing contest with Jonathan Papelbon. Today's NY Post has an article about how Pap said that Hankenstein should "stick to pencil-pushing." So Boss Jr. fired back by calling Papelbon "a mouse."

It's apparent that Hankenstein has a Red Sox obsession, as he's said little about the dustup his club had with the Tampa Bay Rays over the past week, but when the subject of the Sox comes up, he can't wait to open his yapper and insert his foot there. His rivals seem to know how to push his buttons, and Papelbon, who's never shy about expressing his opinions, did just that. The article:

This is going to be a fascinating baseball season. I think Hankenstein might be well-advised to remember a quote from our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln: "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."

But I guess in Mr. Hankee's case, it might just be a little too late.

Way too late for Mr. Hanky to be quiet, he's already pegged as an outright fool!
He's also raising cain about other team's "targetting" his team's stars and says they need to remember who gives them all that revenue-sharing money before they go after the Yankees.
What an arrogant ass - hell, just LOOK at him (thanks for the picture)
By the way, I'm sure Ass-Rod and Captain Jeter will be glad to hear that Shelly Duncan is one of the Yankees' stars!
