Hank: "Most Of The National Media Is Full Of Yankee Haters."


Hank:
"Most of the national media is full of Yankee haters. ... That's why I have to point out the injuries. Because the media sweep that under the rug and say we're playing poorly. But next year, in a new stadium, we'll be much better. ... We'll add players. We're gonna be very tough [next season]."

And by haters, I mean lovers.

A Steinbrenner saying "next year." I love it.

My problem with them blaming injuries is that two of the guys were completely unproven and one was largely unproven to begin with. Wang is a tough loss, but for all we know, they could've been worse had Kennedy and Hughes been healthy all year.

The problem with them blaming injuries is them blaming injuries. Injuries are part of sports. You either get there or you don't.

Hank, you couldn't be more right - I'm sure that the new stadium will make your players perform better. The problem isn't aging veterans, unproven youngsters or poor GM drafting and decision making - it's that the HTRB just seems to have lost it charm. Don't change a thing!

I actually think injuries are a pretty good excuse, or at least they can be. The problem with the Yankees crying "injuries!" is they haven't really had that many of them. You want injuries? Look at what the Sox went through in August of '06. Thems injuries.
