“I’m very disappointed with the way the season has gone, period,” Steinbrenner said at the team’s spring training complex.
“We just can’t win one out of five games, every time Wang pitches,” Steinbrenner said. “It’s not going to work. It’s not a good win percentage. Starting pitching is where it’s at, especially in the postseason. At this point, we’ll see if we even make the postseason.”
Well, the Yankees actual record is right in line with their Pythagorean Winning Percentage. So, Hank, as Ye sow, so shall Ye reap. Or, as I like to say: “You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken poop.” If you wanted a better starting staff, you should have made sure that your front office had a proven and trusted one in place – or, at the least, that they had a “Plan B” above and beyond Rasner, Igawa and Kartsens.
