Yankees have some nerve

In the span of five weeks, Hank Steinbrenner has gone from The Boss' son to overexposed whiner.

Steinbrenner, taking control from his father, was front and center in the A-Rod renegotiations and, now, he is the one trying to strong-arm the Minnesota Twins into dealing Johan Santana.

Hank Steinbrenner said he wants the Twins to make a decision on dealing Santana by Monday evening or the Yankees are out of the negotiations.

Let's see, Minnesota is a mid-market team with a penny-pinching owner and the Yankees are, well, the Yankees. There is no need for Steinbrenner -- any Steinbrenner -- to try to force the hand of any team then hide behind the "we're not going to be played by the Red Sox" card.
