Hal Steinbrenner has broken his relative silence on all things Arod and has admitted the somewhat obvious.
What may initially signal as another ‘Arod situation’ is actually a much needed breath of fresh air, as Hal Steinbrenner finally opened up about Arod.
“There have no doubt been times when we’ve been disappointed in him and we’ve conveyed that to him and he understands that,…But look, everybody’s human and everybody makes mistakes. If you’ve got a guy over the course of 10 years, there’s going to be times any of us make mistakes … It’s a big contract,…We all hope he’s going to act like a Yankee and do the best to live up to it.”
Steinbrenner is toeing a very dangerous line by opening up about Arod, with Biogensis clinic-gate still hanging over that massive contract.
Arod issued no comment on the matter, stating that his sole focus is on his rehab stint and getting back onto the field–not surprising.
Could this be just be the calm before an impending storm for Arod vs the Yankees?
