Sterling Gives Snorre a Free Pass

I was listening to the game while Sturtze and Proctor were walking everyone, when Sterling started a tirade about how chemistry and managing are all baloney. It's all about pitching, he said.

If that's the case, John, then Joe Snorre doesn't deserve any credit for his championship run. He deserves no credit for leading those veteran teams. After all, he had some damn good pitching over the years, with Cone, Pettitte, Clemens, El Duque, Mussina etc.

It's amazing that when the Yankees win, you always hear about how Torre is a genius of a manager. Suddenly, this year, the Yankees stink up and hardly anyone gives Snorre a hard time. A while back we mentioned an article by Mike Lupica saying that Snorre should be held accountable for the Junkees' struggles. And Joel Sherman awarded Torre as runner-up in the AL anti-manager of the year category. But that's been it.

But then again, what do you expect from al-Yankzeera?
