Stephen A. Smith’s angry rant about the Yankees on Wednesday had one troubling error.

Smith finished his tirade by criticizing Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Smith insisted that Boone would be fired if the Mets won the World Series and the Yankees didn’t.

Hank Steinbrenner died two years ago at the age of 63, so this is an especially sad and egregious mistake by Smith. Hal, the younger brother, has been the main owner-level decision maker for many years.

The ESPN host started his rant by calling the Yankees “flat-out trash” and telling viewers that he knew a lot about the subject because he was born in The Bronx and is a Yankees fan. Smith, on the other hand, is known for making mistakes when he doesn’t play basketball.

Still, it was hard to argue with the first idea. Before Wednesday, when they beat the Rays 8-7 in a thrilling game, the Yankees hadn’t been doing well. They had lost six of their last seven games. In the bottom of the tenth inning, Josh Donaldson hit a grand slam that ended the game.
