Little Stein: “It’s getting ridiculous”

Hank Steinbrenner is mad. This from the AP in Tampa:

“We’ve got to start hitting. It’s getting ridiculous. They’ve got to start waking up. They’ve shown in flashes what they can still do,” he said.

“Even when I was worried about the pitching earlier — starting pitching is the most important thing of all — but Brian would keep telling me, ‘Yes, but I worried about the hitting.’ That was Brian’s biggest concern even as we were reconstructing the pitching. We all know they’re better than that. I don’t know. Maybe a little less outside distractions and a little more concentrating and they’ll start hitting better. I thought they would go on a consistent tear, and it hasn’t happened yet.

“Not just this one series, but maybe the next couple series is going to be pivotal. We can definitely still make a run at it.”

Outside distractions? What would those be?
