When I read the headline "Torre's brother: What Yanks did to Joe 'was not right'", I was prepared to read some whiny, griping story showing one brother sticking up for another. And to a point, that's what this is. But what made it more interesting to me was the way Frank nails Hank directly and without fear of reprisal:
What really disturbs Frank Torre is not so much the Yankees didn't want his brother back, but the way they've acted since his departure.Well said, sir. Born on third base, thought he hit a triple. Such is Hank.
"I hear (Yankees co-chairman) Hank Steinbrenner say where would Joe Torre be without the Yankees," Frank Torre said. "Well, let me tell you, Hank Steinbrenner was fortunate he was born in the Steinbrenner family. His inheritance is a whole lot bigger now than it would have been if not for my brother. I think he gained a lot more money than my brother after all of those World Series."
