Hank speaks, blames injuries

Hank Steinbrenner decided to open his mouth for the first time in a while. In this article, he blames injuries for the team's lack of success recently.

“I’m not writing off this season,” the team’s co-chairman said Tuesday. “They’re trying hard to win. There’s only so much you can do. They’re not supermen.”

“I think it’s very simple, we’ve been devastated by injuries. No team I’ve ever seen in baseball has been decimated like this. It would kill any team,” Steinbrenner said. “Imagine the Red Sox without (Josh) Beckett and (Jon) Lester. Pitching is 70 percent of the game. Wang won 19 games two straight years. Chamberlain became the most dominating pitcher in baseball. You can’t lose two guys like that.”
Pitching is 70 percent of the game, the other half is offense.

This team might have been devastated by injuries, but lack of clutch hitting is the cause of death.
Look at Roy Halladay. He's the best pitcher you can find, but he can't win the game without run support.
