PohladCarl Pohlad, 91, the owner of the Twins, and MLB's richest owner, took shots the the NY Yankees yesterday, sounding, as the NY Times said, "more like Steinbrenner," than Steinbrenner. Pohlad's comments come as the Twins are nearing a possible post-season matchup with the Yankees. As Pohlad said, originally in The St. Paul Pioneer Press, and republished in the NY Times:
“I’d rather play the Yankees because I know we can beat them,” Pohlad was quoted as saying yesterday in The St. Paul Pioneer Press.

When Pohlad was subsequently asked if he would derive the most enjoyment out of defeating George Steinbrenner, the Yankees’ principal owner, he told the newspaper, “That’s right.”

What was more surprising than Pohlad’s remarks about a team that defeated the Twins in the American League division series in 2003 and in 2004, was Steinbrenner’s reaction. He had none. For once, Steinbrenner, who is typically loud and proud while discussing or defending the Yankees, was mum.

“He’s certainly a friend of mine, so I’ll decline comment on that,” Steinbrenner said through Howard Rubenstein, his spokesman.
