After two surgeries, a year suspension and a heap of scrutiny, Alex Rodriguez was back on third base this weekend where he was more than a bit uncomfortable. Luckily only one ball went his way in his five innings of action.
“It felt like 10 years, at least,” Rodriguez said. “I still can’t believe I had to throw the ball that far across the diamond. It is a long ways.”
The Yankees face the Baltimore Orioles tomorrow. Be sure to get your tickets now!
The NL East lead the Toronto Blue Jays held over the New York Yankees has shriveled to just2.5 games after the Yankees took out the Jays 3-7 in the second of a three game home stand. Catcher Brian McCann had a lot to do with the game two victory last night by tying a career high with five RBIs, led by a go-ahead two-run homer off starter Mark Buehrle in the fourth inning, guiding the Yankees to a 7-3 victory.
“Tonight was a good night,” McCann said. “It was about time I chipped in. … It was just nice to contribute on the offensive side for a change.”
The Yankees can finish off the Blue Jays today in Game three. Be sure to get your tickets and get out to support your Yankees! Great seats and cheap tickets are available!
As many fans of baseball know ( the New York Yankees in particular), Derek Jeter is not getting any younger and a search for his replacement is an ongoing concern for the Yankees ball club. Just don’t expect for the organization to enter a bidding war for Shortstop Stephen Drew.
Drew’s agent, Scott Boras, has stated that Drew can and will be willing to play multiple positions but the tweaking of the Yankee roster seems to have ended (at least any major moves) with the acquisition of Masahiro Tanaka to a seven year, $155 million.
“Stephen is a great shortstop,” Boras said. “Teams have called us about Stephen and said that he would be an excellent second baseman or third baseman, and we don’t disagree.
The Yankees open the season against the Houston Astros April 1st. Great seats and tickets are still available, so get your today!
A-Rod is sure he will return to form the only question is…when.
“We’re in the very beginning, I would say Stage 1, in this recovery,” Rodriguez said. “The recovery is going very well. I’ve been devoting 100 percent of my time and my focus into getting back and playing and helping this team win a title.”
What he may not recover from, however, is the PED scandal that has recently erupted causing “The Donald” Donald Trump to recently call out A-Rod on the Twitter social media feed.
“The @Yankees should immediately stop paying A-Rod—he signed his contract without telling them he was a druggie,”
The 37-year old Rodriguez is still due $114 million on the final five years of his contract which, Trump pointed out, is more then the entire Houston Astros roster.
“A-Rod’s salary is more than the entire @astros. Half the players on @astros will have better seasons than him. A-Rod is a joke!”
Whatever happens with A-Rod, you can be sure that the New York Yankees will be exciting this year so don’t pass on the opportunity to get your tickets!
