CLEVELAND (AP) - Contrary to what some people believe, Brian McCann loves New York.
McCann addressed a story in which Atlanta hitting coach Terry Pendleton said McCann, who played eight seasons for the Braves before signing with the Yankees in the offseason, would ''never be comfortable'' playing in New York.
McCann, who is batting .230 with 10 homers and 38 RBIs, doesn't agree.
The catcher says, ''I absolutely love it here.''
McCann, a seven-time All-Star catcher with the Braves, signed a five-year, $85 million deal with the Yankees in December.
Pendleton made his comments to the New York Post on Monday before the Braves opened a series against the Mets at Citi Field.
