Hall of Famer Bubba Crosby rips Yankees

You remember Bubba Crosby. In three years with the Yankees he hit .223 with 11 extra-base hits in 238 at-bats while striking out 48 times. Despite those torrid stats, he was designated for assignment last summer and stormed out of Joe Torre’s office in Baltimore after some harsh words.

Well, Bubba is with the Reds now and yesterday he blamed all his woes on those mean Yankees.

The Reds are a closer team than the Yankees, he said. Torre never gave him the green light. He was labeled a utility player in New York.

“I knew I could go out there in spring and lead the whole camp in hitting and it wouldn’t matter, I’d still be the fifth outfielder,” he said. “It’s nice to go to an organization that if you produce, you’re going to play.”

Earth to Bubba: The Yankees had better players than you.
