STEINBRENNER AND YANKEES MOCK JOHN HENRY AND RED SOX 

Red Sox owner, John Henry, now favors salary cap.

Henry's hypocritical stance about the salary cap reveals his fear that not getting Alex Rodriguez will haunt him with the Boston Red Sox fans. Here is a response from George Steinbrenner.

Statement by George M. Steinbrenner
Principal owner, New York Yankees on comments by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry

"We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston. It is understandable, but wrong that he would try to deflect the accountability for his mistakes on to others and to a system for which he voted in favor. It is time to get on with life and forget the sour grapes." Yankees press release is on their website
