George Steinbrenner wrote:"Enough is enough. I am bitterly disappointed, as I'm sure all Yankee fans are, by the lack of performance by our team," Steinbrenner said in a statement issued immediately after the game. "It is unbelievable to me that the highest-paid team in baseball would start the season in such a deep funk. They are not playing like true Yankees. They have the talent to win and they are not winning. I expect Joe Torre, his complete coaching staff and the team to turn this around."
I can understand their record after the 2nd Red Sox series, but the sweep by the O's makes me ponder if their bull pen is all that. We all know the Yankees will turn it around, but IMO they need a stronger bull pen.
