Yankees Manager Speaks To Alabama Team

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Girardi spoke Thursday morning about three issues that can hurt a team with high expectations: Complacency, selfishness and accountability.
Saban says Girardi flew in with his son and spoke about seven hours after getting home from a 12-inning loss to the Chicago White Sox.
Saban spent a day with the Yankees and minor league players at spring training. He often quoted closer Mariano Rivera during last year’s national championship run.
Crimson Tide safety Vinnie Sunseri says he’s a Yankees fan “and was all googly-eyed” when Girardi was speaking. He says “a lot of the stuff that he said relates to us, and we’ve got to really take it to heart.”
