Note to Joe Girardi

21 Aug

 

You seem to have some problems with basic English grammar, as evidenced by your comments after the Yankees lost to the Minnesota Twins last night:  

"I’m tired of people looking for something between me and A. J.  Me and A. J. have mutual respect for each other."

 

You should have said, "I'm tired of people looking for something between A. J. and me.  A. J. and I have mutual respect for each other."

 

Let's also hope that you can show greater respect for the English language.

    Would Yogi be excused?

      Yogi might be the only exception for strict adherence. After all, he has developed a language of his own, beyond English. And he has legions of followers who serve as curators. But his language deviation should be restricted to only one practitioner. We must not encourage followers.
