John Sterling Reacts to Comments on McCann

Brian McCann is not the guy he was in Atlanta, batting just .230 for the Yankees this year. His former Braves hitting coach on Tuesday said, “New York is not Brian.”

“I knew if he chose New York, there would be more than he expected or knew about,” said Terry Pendleton of the Braves. “[Brian] will never be comfortable with that.”

Voice of the Yankees John Sterling joined Armen and Levack on Tuesday afternoon with a different opinion.

“I think that is an absolute excuse and I don’t see it,” said Sterling. “I’m very friendly with Brian McCann and he’s as cool as can be. He’s working hard at it. He’s great receiving the pitchers. I just think that’s an errant excuse, I don’t think that has anything to do with this.”
