All They Care About Is Winning!
Just when you thought Big Rube was over his asinine comment stage, he's at it again.
In last month's issue of The Sporting News, the AL: East Preview had an interesting sidebar:
When asked by Twins manager Ron Gardenhire for the secret to beating the Yankees, ex-pinstriper Ruben Sierra says, "Play them in October."
Oh Ruben, are you feeling jilted because Bernie Williams was selected to be the "New Ruben Sierra"? (By that of course I mean an aging and unproductive player who can't hit anymore and is a defensive liability). You're not even good enough to hang on with the light hitting Twins for crying out loud. The followup in the article though is priceless:
Note to Gardenhire: Pass that info along to the Indians and White Sox--they actually could use it.
It's like Sierra just can't move on. He acts like a jilted ex-girlfriend every time the Yankees let him go. And if there's one thing I know about, it's jilted ex-girlfriends.
