I told you that Hank Steinbrenner is like that old Sports Illustrated commercial, the gift that keeps on giving. I actually didn’t think he’d flying off the handle again until at least June. What’s he going to do when they’re 15 games back? The following quotes all came out yesterday.
“These players are being paid a lot of money and they had better decide for themselves to earn that money.”
“This is going to get turned around … If it’s not turned around this year, then it will be turned around next year, by force if we have to.”
“I’m not saying they are not giving the effort, but they need to be playing harder.”
“We’ve got to forget about all the injuries and start playing our butts off.”
“[The Yankees] need to start treating it like when they were younger players and going after that big contract, like they’re in [Triple-A] and trying to make the majors. That’s the kind of attitude and fire the players have to have.”
