It's hard not to consider Hank's relationship with his father in Oedipal terms. He is fiercely loyal to his father, as demonstrated by his published comments about Joe Torre, and at times Hank has sounded a lot like George Steinbrenner, circa 1980, perhaps most noticeably in his spiteful public treatment of A-Rod. ... "You look at what Hank says and how he's conducting himself and you get the impression that he's trying too hard to be George," said one of the team's limited partners, who did not want to be identified because he was wary of speculating publicly about the family.
