Yankees | Stottlemyre Has Words About Steinbrenner

The Associated Press reports departing New York Yankees pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre called Yankees owner George Steinbrenner's comments after their Game 5 loss a slap in the face of Joe Torre. Steinbrenner said Tuesday: "I congratulate the Angels and their manager on the great job they've done." "I laughed when I saw it," Stottlemyre said. "My first thoughts were, 'What about Joe? Joe had done a hell of a job, too.' To congratulate the other manager and not congratulate your own after what he'd done this year, I laughed." Stottlemyre also criticized the schism between the team's New York and Tampa, Fla., offices and said Torre's job status shouldn't be questioned.
