New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said he won’t fire manager Joe Torre and General Manager Brian Cashman, and that the last-place team needs to start winning.
“It is time to put excuses and talk away,” Steinbrenner said in a statement distributed by his publicist, Howard J. Rubenstein. “It is time to see if people are ready to step up and accept their responsibilities.”
Steinbrenner’s comments come after the team dropped eight of its last nine games, including five loses to the rival Boston Red Sox, bringing up questions about Torre’s future with the club.
The Yankees, whose $190 million payroll is the biggest in Major League Baseball, are in last place in the American League East Division with a 9-14 record after the first month of the season. It’s the franchise’s worst April in 16 years.
