It's expired as a free article.

Steinbrenner was clearly annoyed by how the Yankees had been portrayed in certain circles as a heartless organization that did not care about Tampa Bay's plight and that was intent on grabbing a forfeit victory without ever playing one inning. Steinbrenner lives in Tampa, but he was in New York for the hurricane. He loves most things about Florida, but not the Devil Rays or Vincent Naimoli, their owner.

One baseball official said he thought Steinbrenner was mostly lashing out against Selig and DuPuy because he disliked how much criticism the Yankees had received. Steinbrenner may be fined for his comments about Selig and DuPuy. Trost said DuPuy initially told him on Friday that baseball had postponed Tampa Bay's two weekend games to enable the Devil Rays to get to New York. Even after Chuck LaMar, Tampa Bay's general manager, told Cashman on Friday that the Devil Rays were not traveling until Monday, Trost said DuPuy assured them that Naimoli said the Devil Rays were trying to leave Florida.

Another baseball official said that when the Devil Rays said on Monday that they did not want to leave their families alone in the hurricane, it was the first that the commissioner's office had heard that reason for not leaving before they did. John McHale, vice president for administration of Major League Baseball, spoke to Devil Rays officials at least 10 times over the weekend, the official said, and that reason never came up.

Cashman said the proof that Major League Baseball expected the Devil Rays to be on time was the fact that it allowed thousands of fans and the Yankees' players to be at Yankee Stadium for hours.

.Levine said that Major League Baseball officials had misrepresented that the Devil Rays were trying to get to New York when in fact they were not.

The Yankees drew a parallel between how Tampa Bay reacted and how the Yankees reacted during Hurricane Isabel last Sept. 18. Although the Yankees wanted to leave Baltimore because of the expectation of inclement weather, M.L.B. directed them to stay and play. The game was called after five innings. Steinbrenner said at the time that it was a "great act of stupidity." He was just as agitated last night.

LOL, talk about an understatement. There was a hurricane coming in, horizontal rain and strong winds during the game, the Yankees' hotel was flooded, there were around 50 people in the stands (those foolish enough not to have taken cover yet), and the Yankees barely got out of Baltimore alive, on the last flight before they shut down the airport.

What a joke that was.

I think Bud "I-Could-Carve-A-Better-Commissioner-Out-Of-A-Banana" Selig kinda hates the Yankees.
