Donald Trump Named Yankees General Manager for 2013
Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump demanded via Twitter that Joe Girardi take slugger Alex Rodriguez out of the starting lineup for the team’s playoff series against the Baltimore Orioles.
Girardi refused, and Rodriguez went 0-3 with two strikeouts in the game.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, A-Rod was finally pulled in favor of Raul Ibanez, who immediately launched a home run to send the game into extra innings. The 40-year old Ibanez then won the game in the bottom of the 12th with another solo blast.
After the game, team owner Hal Steinbrenner lauded Trump’s brilliance, naming him the ball club’s general manager heading into next season.
The eccentric billionaire wasted no time trimming payroll.
“In addition to cutting Jeter’s salary in half, I’ll be turning the owner’s box into a luxury condo,” Trump told OMGG.com. “If you have any further questions, please ask our team’s press secretary and Celebrity Apprentice season nine winner, Bret Michaels.
