For a week or two now, I’ve told you about the issues Joe Girardi has had with the media.
It’s also something that Joel Sherman of the Post blogged about yesterday.
They’ve even talked about it on YES from time to time.
Perhaps Girardi is simply experiencing some growing pains in a new, difficult job. I hope that’s the case. The last thing I want as a beat writer is for the manager to have a contentious relationship with the media. That doesn’t help anybody, especially people interested in reading about the team.
My understanding is that Girardi is trying to mend some fences, which is a positive step. He’s a smart guy and that’s a smart move.
The Brewers DFA’d one-time closer Derrick Turnbow. Might the Yankees consider him? Anything is possible. But Turnobow is a classic example of a player who started to fade once the drug-testing program started in Major League Baseball.
Off to the Stadium in a bit. Check back later for the lineup and other news.
