Yankees tell Reggie Jackson to go away

86 Comments

Reggie Jackson made headlines last week for saying that Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Jim Rice, Bert Blyleven, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, and also for saying that Alex Rodriguez’s numbers should be questioned due to performance enhancing drugs.

Jackson later apologized and Rodriguez seemingly brushed it off by saying: “With friends like that, who needs enemies.”

However, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.com the Yankees aren’t so quick to forgive Mr. October’s comments and he’s been “told to stay away from team events indefinitely.”

Olney notes that Jackson is a paid “special advisor” to the Yankees and often travels with the team, but was not in Boston over the weekend.
