Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner said Friday he’s unhappy with New York’s play so far this season citing injuries as a pertinent factor.
“The injuries have been a killer, there’s no question about that,” Steinbrenner said. “It happens to one team every year, sometimes more than one team. And it just appears to be our year. It’s something you’ve got to deal with in every sport.”
After a media fueled bitch-slap by Yankees GM Brian Cashman, The Baby Boss has changed his tune regarding the Joba Chamberlain situation and now agrees that Chamberlain could move from the bullpen to a starting role later this year.
“There’s no question, you just can’t stick him in there right away,” Steinbrenner said from the Yankees Spring Training complex in Tampa, “He’s got to be brought along properly. You have to stick with it (the plan).”
Uh-huh. Notice how Hank has been sent to Tampa and is exclusively toeing the company line these days?
C’mon Henry. Don’t puss out just because your first real blow-up as owner turned you into a national laughingstock.
Maybe it’s time to change managers?? Hmm? Hmm? We’re just sayin…
