Steinbrenner backs Torre and Cashman, but says results not acceptable

April 30, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees owner George Steinbrenner backed manager Joe Torre and GM Brian Cashman on Monday, challenging players and staff "to show me and the fans what they are made of" following a start he termed "clearly not acceptable."

Steinbrenner previously had refused comment on his team, which went 1-5 against the Boston Red Sox the past two weekends and dropped into last place in the AL East at 9-14.

"The season is still very young, but up to now the results are clearly not acceptable to me or to Yankee fans," Steinbrenner said in a statement. "However, Brian Cashman, our general manager, Joe Torre, our manager, and our players all believe that they will turn this around quickly.

"I believe in them. I am here to support them in any way to help them accomplish this turnaround. It is time to put excuses and talk away. It is time to see if people are ready to step up and accept their responsibilities. It is time for all of them to show me and the fans what they are made of.

"Let's get going. Let's go out and win and bring a world championship back to New York. That's what I want."

After Sunday's 7-4 loss to Boston, Yankees captain Derek Jeter said criticism of Torre was misplaced.

"It's unfair," Jeter said. "There's no way he's responsible for us performing. He's not hitting for us. He's not pitching for us. He puts the best players out there on the field, gives us an opportunity to win. We're just not doing the job. That's unfair, and it should stop. ... He's doing a great job this year. We just haven't done the job on the field. That's the bottom line."

Yes, because nothing screams "real man" more than ramming a 72 year old man's face into the ground.
What was Zim thinking charging at Pedro? Not a good move. Did anyone notice how short Manny's hair was?

I always wonder what those who denounce Pedro's actions would have expected him to do. Clearly he's being attached by an enraged, oversized gerbil...should he have let Zip just punch him or tackle him?
Frankly I think he showed restraint by merely tossing him asunder, others might have clocked the old man.

Perhaps our residnet Yankee/Met super fan can answer the question for me...what would have been the correct action for Pedro MrPryck?

Ramming? Please. What the hell else was Pedro supposed to do? Run away? Yeah, that would have looked really good.

I still enjoy that video - especially the cop patting Zim to make sure he's still alive.

bad news: I'm really worried about Wright/Delgado

good news: we're winning more than losing in spite of their anemic bats.

If you read my whole post, I questioned what Zim was thinking for charging at Pedro. Zim should have never charged Pedro. Zim felt badly afterward and tearfully apologized. What could Pedro have done? Gotten the fuck out of the way! The guy was 72 years old. You telling me he couldn't have dodged him.

Many of you know that I'm a Yankee fan, but, I didn't really think Pedro was out of line for what he "did" to Zimmer. Zimmer charged him, Zimmer is to blame, simple as that. That game was so uncomfortable to watch.

Um, that's what Pedro did. He dodged him by moving him to the side. Yes, it's unfortunate that Zimmer fell to the ground, but that was more due to his momentum of charging Pedro rather than being thrown to the ground. I think Pedro did the best thing he could do. He certainly didn't "ram" him to the ground, though, which was how you originally worded it.

You're right! I think I should've said slightly guided his head. Pedro did kind of guide the old man's head. When I watch it now, I laugh my ass off. Like I said, what was Zim thinking?
