Hal Steinbrenner calls out Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez has taken shots from Yankee brass for two straight days — and he hasn’t 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 we’ve been disappointed in him and we’ve conveyed that to him,” the owner said yesterday. “He understands that. Everybody’s human. Everybody makes mistakes. If you’ve got a guy over the course of 10 years, there are gonna be times … any of us make mistakes.”

Steinbrenner’s remarks came a day after GM Brian Cashman told ESPN he didn’t 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, Rodriguez’s name surfaced in the records of an anti-aging clinic that is being investigated by MLB for possible ties to performance enhancing drugs.
