Another selection from Feeding the Monster; this time it's George Steinbrenner on Larry Lucchino:
He's not the kind of guy you want to have in your foxhole. He's running the team behind John Henry's back. I warned John it would happen, told him, "Just be careful." He talks out of both sides of his mouth. He has trouble talking out of the front of it.
In fairness to Lucchino, Steinbrenner was just a tad irked after Lucchino referred to the Yankees as "the Evil Empire".
