YANKEES STILL HAVE NOT HIRED A PR DIRECTOR--NY DAILY NEWS
This folly explains in part the mis-handling of the Arod appearance at Barnes & Noble to which the cops were summoned (plus a bunch of other things--thanks, Bob Raissman):
"It is absolutely incredible that with a week until spring training, the Yankees have not hired a public relations director to replace Rick Cerrone. They are entrusting the handling of all the anticipated hot-button issues - A-Rod, Joe Torre, Don Mattingly/Joe Girardi, George Steinbrenner's health and even the potential arrival of Roger Clemens - to Cerrone's inexperienced lieutenants.
Media members will be dealing in explosives from the get-go. They should all have their blood pressure checked before heading to Tampa next week. When last they saw Torre, he was attempting to extricate himself from ax-wielding Steinbrenner's chopping block.
Make no mistake, The Boss had decided to fire Torre after that Detroit playoff debacle. Torre, who had no answers, simply watched stoically as most of the high-priced Yankees surrendered without a fight. But Steinbrenner, the only man in the organization breathing fire after this embarrassment, was talked out of dumping Torre by Brian Cashman."
- From Bob Raissman's NY Daily News column, 2/9/07, (and he goes into the latest Arod flap), "Bombshells for Bombers." Of special note to me, this validates and vindicates my posts to this blog about the rogue nation-state, the YES NETWORK.
P.S. If we're going to get the stoic, "I can do whatever I want including sink this team," Joe Torre this year, I'll be elsewhere. sm
