Dear Brian Bruney,
Shut up. Just shut up.
To refresh everyone’s memory, this is what Bruney said about Francisco Rodriguez after pitching in Trenton:
“Couldn’t have happened to a better guy on the mound, either. He’s got a tired act,” Bruney said. “He gets what he deserves, man. I just don’t like watching the guy pitch. I think it’s embarrassing.”
How about you actually help your team before you start putting your foot in your mouth? The man they call K-Rod, obviously, is none too pleased. I don’t really care how he feels, but the Yankees are in no position to be talking at all.
Oh, and manager Joe Girardi, the one who is supposed to be setting an example, called out Brad Penny for hitting Alex Rodriguez.
Now we know where the players get it from. Word of advice: open your mouths after you beat Boston for once and legitimately beat the Mets.
I’m all for a team having a certain swagger and an attitude, but there is a time and a place. Right now, this team is playing horrible baseball. They have no right to say anything.
