Brian McCann: I'm fine playing for big money in Big Apple


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Yankees catcher Brian McCann has responded to former hitting coach Terry Pendleton and his claim that he is not cut out to play in New York.

"It's his opinion," he told NJ.com. "That's all that I can say. It's his opinion."

He has certainly performed better recently. McCann has seven hits in his last four games.


Former coach: Brian McCann shouldn't be in New York


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Braves hitting coach Terry Pendleton has complained that former "student" Brian McCann took his talents to the wrong place.

McCann has been struggling as a free agent signee with the Yankees. A recent seven-hit stretch over four games has only served to sweeten his stat line to .230/.289/.379. Pendleton believes those struggles are the result of his move to the Big Apple.

"New York is not Brian," Pendleton told the New York Post. "That's my opinion. I knew if he chose New York, there would be more than he expected or knew about. He'll never be comfortable with that. ... Going from Atlanta to New York is a different animal. Brian McCann is going to put more heat on himself and for him, trying to do more is the worst thing."

Pendleton added that the five-year, $85 million hasn't helped.

"That money is hanging over his head," Pendleton said. "A lot of guys say, 'I've got to live up to that,' instead of 'They signed you to play your game.'"
