    Anyway, does Reggie have nothing better to do than hang around the Yankee organization all day? He's more of a California Angel than a New York Yankee, and he played more than twice as many games with Oakland. He played a total of 5 seasons with NYY and averaged 29 HR and 92 RBI per season. Whoop dee do. Go hang out in Anaheim and leave us alone. I agree with the poster in #66, his number never should have been retired by the Yankees.
    And Reggie's best seasons came with the A's as well.

      Reggie is an employee of the Yankees, so yeah, he does have a reason to "hang around" the team.

      Reggie was the biggest star in MLB during his time in NY, and was a huge part of two Yankee WS titles. Despite his up and down relationship with George and his short tenure with the NYY, it was a cinch that Reggie was going to have his number retired.
      Winfield and Henderson are more deserving of the Yankees retiring their numbers.
      Lou Gehrig is the Truest Yankee of them all!

        He could have said lots of things so why say what he did about a player that he is close to. By that I mean the clubhouse, different functions, the batting cage.

        Sounds foolish to me, he had to know there was going to be some negative feedback.
        Even when some speak in a negative way and neither player is connected, it's bad, these two are in the same organization.

        Not even sure I get you point Doc...............they interviewed him and what was he suppposed to say, that makes it acceptable being interviewed. He made a mistake.

          He wasn't just spouting off randomly like some seem to think. He was about a particular subject. Should he have ignored the question? Should he have lied? There are a heck of a lot of armchair reactions going on, when Jackson has said something he has said before and is hardly the only one who has said it.

            I haven't read the whole article, was he asked for an opinion on AROD. He didn't have to lie about anything, why bring it up, you don't think he had to even think he would have to answer for that later, comment on his statement.
            The fact that he's not the only one means nothing. One more time, the man did not think, he knew he was to come face to face with AROD.
            Thats not all, already he reaching to some others who came at him for the comments on Carter and Puckett.
            He's done it before and will again................I'll shoot off my mouth and explain later..............he never learns

              Keith Olbermann blogs at mlb.com about baseball--I note that because some commenters feel compelled to talk about his political views when HE doesn't. But he tore into the Yankee organization over its handling of Reggie, and really, he's right.

                I haven't read Olbermann's article, but I am at a loss...

                Alex Rodriguez is a product of the Yankees. He is a big part of their brand and they've invested a lot of money into him, with the hopes that he will provide a positive return on their investment. What Reggie did is equivalent to an executive at Apple claiming in an interview that the new iPhone is a piece of crap. You just don't do that.

                  I am so tired of people saying mighty-mouthed things with so much mojo and confidence...and then give a scripted, cliched apology (typically from an agent or lawyer) a few days later. Either that or claim that you were misquoted or taken out of context. I disagreed with what Jackson said, but just once I want to see somebody stick with what they said.

                      One can like isolated attributes of people without liking or supporting the whole person. I like Sheen's honestly. Call me crazy, but I am not a fan of wife-beating, drug use, shooting actresses, or pulling knives on people's throats.
