• In His Hands, Or, On His Neck?

    Via the AP tonight:

    Yankees owner George Steinbrenner couldn’t stay completely quiet following the 18-run loss, which happened on his 76th birthday, releasing a vague statement about general manager Brian Cashman.

    “Brian Cashman is working hard to improve the team and the responsibility is totally in his hands,” Steinbrenner said.

    Meaning, if the Yankees screw up this season, the Teflon Stein will not be taking the hit here. George is playing Uncle Ben to Cash’s Peter Parker with this message.

      As I recall George issued the exact statement last year.
