Posada, Abreu Don't Mind Hank's Pressure

Mark Lelinwalla/New York Daily News:

With the last-place record, Hank Steinbrenner wasted no time in cracking the whip, telling the Daily News that, other than a few players, the majority of the Yankees were "not doing jack----."

Posada, who's in his 14th season, all in pinstripes, wasn't mad upon hearing Steinbrenner's latest tongue-lashing. Instead, the Yankee catcher says the new Boss is justified.

"He's saying the truth," Posada said. "He wants to win. There's nothing wrong of your owner wanting to win. So it's a matter of us really coming through and performing the way we need to."

Abreu agrees, adding that the pressure to win is rising.

"We just have to go out there and do it," said Abreu. "You always have pressure. You just have to go out, do your job and help the team win."
