Not happy,” but the Yankees general manager partner still believes brighter days lie ahead.

Steinbrenner delivered a speech During an appearance on ESPN . Understand how Yankees fans feel about this year’s club. New York snapped a four-game slide on Tuesday to start Wednesday with a 94-33 Record, 04 behind the Rays, who lead the American League East.

“I want to know the vibe outside How, I know they’re upset,” Steinbrenner said. “It’s the third week of June this year and I’m a bit confused why they’re so upset. But they’re upset and that certainly gets my attention. Everyone just needs to know that we’re working hard on all fronts to get things back on track, And start playing like a few weeks in May.”

Steinbrenner said player fitness will be a key factor in improving the club’s game; they are 5 since Aaron Judge injured his right big toe while catching the ball at Dodger Stadium on June 3 8 wins and 8 losses.

The Bombers haven’t been to a World Series since , but general manager Brian Cashman and the Key players such as coach Aaron Boone have been awarded contract extensions.

“[The mission statement] hasn’t been adjusted. Our goal every year is to win championships,” Steinbrenner said. “I’ve been through this before with a lot of guys. If we don’t do this, do I feel like the whole season is a failure? No, I don’t. Because I’m not going to overlook that we win X games and win a division or Time to win the [AL] division series. I won’t ignore this.

“But we haven’t won a championship for many years and that’s our ultimate goal. I’ve been through that a lot in the offseason. I’ve talked to many of you. For all the reasons I’ve said, I believe Boone is a good manager and I believe Cashman is a good general manager. …my family puts resources in every year and we try to put together a championship-caliber team. Sooner or later, this leads to championships. “

Yankees Salary No. 2 in baseball, most of it allocated to currently injured or relatively ineffective players: Judge ($98 million), Giancarlo Stanton ($27 million), Carlos Luo Dong ($17.8 million), Josh Donaldson ($

million), Anthony Rizzo ($ million), DJ LeMahieu ($32 million) and Luis Severino ($ million).

“Every year, we’re the best paid in baseball,” Steinbrenner said “So, if I was only concerned with building a competitive team, I wouldn’t sign Rodon. I would have signed Judge and we’d be done. I think we need another No. 1 and No. 2 starter in the rotation to win the playoffs. That’s why we went to Carlos and spent a lot of money on him. He’s going to be great. “

Steinbrenner adds, and the Yankees make the most money in baseball:

“Our baseball expenses are the highest – we operate in the most expensive city in the country. Unlike other cities where the city or county pays about two-thirds of the stadium fee, we pay 94 % of the stadium fee Per year. Regardless of whether we have any income or not, even during the corona pandemic, we pay huge bonds on February 1st.

“We are in player development and scouting As much invested as anyone else. It’s nice to talk about our income, but then you have to talk about expenses. Trust me, our expenses are big and our wages are the biggest.”

“Let’s get through the season; let’s see what happens,” Steinbrenner said. “It’s impossible for Stanton and Rizzo not to start hitting the ball, and I’m sure the others are too. We continue to get contributions from guys like Jack Bowles, who surprises us. I think we’ll be fine. I Trust us we’ll be fine.

“People I It’s delusional to say so, but these people are really good. For two weeks or so in May, when Judge came back from his first [hip] injury, I saw what we could be. I saw who we can be. We can be a force. “
