The Strawman gives out advice

Darryl Strawberry crawled out of his crack den long enough to make an appearance yesterday at a Yankees news conference. Straw was asked a number of questions about the current Yankees formation and in particular why he thought the Yankees haven’t been able to find playoff success in recent years. "I think the Yankees’ problem is that they just don’t support each other enough,” Strawberry was quoted as saying. “I mean, back when I played in those years we were winning, we all supported each other, we all cared for each other. I think they need to get back to that, because the talent is there, but everybody seems like they’re going their separate ways."

Whoa Straw. Time for a reality check. Back in “your day” supporting each other involved sharing your eight ball with Keith Hernandez and tag teaming prostitutes with Doc Gooden. Your ’86 Mets won the championship despite all that “support”, not because of it.
