• Hank Stein: Discount Canseco & A-Rod Is “Just Friggin’ Great”

    Pete Caldera has the scoop -

    Yanks GM Hank Steinbrenner urges fans to “consider the source” of steroid allegations against A-Rod. In his spirited defense of A-Rod on Wednesday, Steinbrenner told The Record: “Consider the source, that’s number one,” Steinbrenner said of Canseco. “He wouldn’t have been able to hit the ball out of the infield without steroids.”

    “There are certain naturals. There are guys who can just do it, and Alex is one of those guys,” Steinbrenner said, during the interview in Clearwater, Fla. “He’s just friggin’ great.”

    He’s just friggin’ great.

    You know, Jason Varitek wears a “C” on his jersey because the team wanted him to don it, as their captain. Maybe Hank should get A-Rod to wear a “JFG” for “Just Friggin’ Great” on his jersey now?

    Yes, I’m joking. But, “He’s just friggin’ great,” is an automatic classic. Thanks Hank.

      I can see the #13 “JFG” t-shirts on sale outside the Stadium now… I’d probably buy one. :-)

      I’d buy one too if they went on sale.

      The only thing that gives me pause is that in the event that the allegations against A-Rod are true, you can bet Hank will run, not walk, away from A-Rod. It’s why I prefer owners to keep their mouths shut. Because when push comes to shove, owners aren’t terribly loyal to their employees and they’d abandon them in a pinch if they had to.
