First things first, I owe Duaner Sanchez and you guys an apology.
After Tuesday night’s meltdown, I ripped Sanchez for not being accountable, saying he tried to sneak out without talking to reporters.
That was a wrong assumption on my part.
The clubhouse opens ten minutes after the final out, but usually we talk with the manager in an interview room then head into the clubhouse.
When I saw Sanchez in the hallway after leaving Manuel’s press conference, I figured he was trying to slide out.
There were so many reporters that night and a lot of us went to the clubhouse first and didn’t talk with Manuel.
It was then when Sanchez first spoke. When he left, which is when I first saw him, he was speaking a second time.
I made the wrong assumption. I apologize to Sanchez and to you.
