Hal Steinbrenner calls out Alex Rodriguez
Alex Rodriguez has taken shots from Yankee brass for two straight days and he hasnt even failed in the playoffs this year.
While the third baseman continues rehabbing his hip in Tampa, Hal Steinbrenner was in The Bronx yesterday admitting the obvious.
There have no doubt been times when weve been disappointed in him and weve conveyed that to him, the owner said yesterday. He understands that. Everybodys human. Everybody makes mistakes. If youve got a guy over the course of 10 years, there are gonna be times any of us make mistakes.
Steinbrenners remarks came a day after GM Brian Cashman told ESPN he didnt think the third baseman would be able to live up to his massive contract.
In addition to his reduced production and his inability to perform in the postseason, Rodriguezs name surfaced in the records of an anti-aging clinic that is being investigated by MLB for possible ties to performance enhancing drugs.
