Hank Steinbrenner doesn't blame manager Joe Girardi for the Yankees' struggles this season, according to New York Post. Hank said Thursday that the entire organization is at fault for the team's unacceptable showing in the standings, with one notable exception: Girardi isn't part of the problem. "As far as Girardi is concerned, who I think is brilliant, this is his first year and he's had to play the hand he was dealt," Steinbrenner said. "Not only that, he lost a lot of his parts through injuries. Baseball managers can't perform miracles. It's easier for a football coach to do that. For a baseball manager it's more leadership and having the parts, having the players."
