From the AP via Newsday -
Despite constant speculation about manager Joe Torre’s job, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner says someone else also needs to deliver as the team looks to reverse its floundering start: general manager Brian Cashman.
“He’s on a big hook,” a spirited Steinbrenner told The Associated Press in a rare interview from this Tampa office. “He wanted sole authority. He got it. Now he’s got to deliver.”
Giambi reportedly admitted to a 2003 grand jury that he used steroids.
“He should have kept his mouth shut,” Steinbrenner opined. “The matter is in the hands of the baseball commissioner.”
You don’t get to see Big Stein wield his hook and offer a zip’it that often these days. It’s about as rare as a Wil Nieves basehit. So, soak this one in as much as you can…if that’s your thing.
