"Contrary to popular belief, every time the Yankees get hit by a pitch, it's not intentional," Showalter said. "Every time they take a pitch, it's not a ball either."
Showalter got in a little hot water before the season when he ripped the Yankees in Men's Journal. In that interview, he said, "I know how many calls that team gets -- and yes, [Jeter] [ticks] me off."
Showalter should know, he was the beneficiary of the bias for those in pinstripes, if it exists, managing the Yankees from 1992-1995.
