“I had no control over a lot of what happened last season,” he said. “The changes weren’t made because I did anything wrong. They took an opportunity away from me and asked me to be a bench guy. I didn’t whine about it. I still needed to get my work in.”
Womack batted .249 with 15 RBIs in 108 games, but only 80 starts.
“I’m going to put a question mark next to last season’s numbers on my baseball card,” he said. “They took the whole season from me.”
Womack must be an ancestor of King Tut – because he’s living in de-Nile.

Yeah, Tony, you were sooooo smooth around second base that the Yankees were out of their minds to move you. And, with the bat, well, you were sooooo productive at the plate, at all times, that the minute you were benched the Yankees went on a long losing streak.
Wait a second. What? Oh, the Yankees played better baseball last year as a team once you were buried for good on the great Yankees pines? Wow, that’s weird, huh?
Wake up, Tony, and smell the putrid stench that was your performance in 2005. The Yankees were not your enemy. It was the pavement that was your enemy – the same one that you smacked into, replicating the impact sound of a morbidly obese bullfrog with a full bladder dropped off the Empire State Building, when your miserable production failed to allow you to keep standing among the rest of the major leaguers on the Yankees roster.
Whew, OK. I feel better now.
