Could A-Rod Be Any More Of A Bitch?
During Yankees batting practice today, hours before Game 2 of the weekend series with the Red Sox, newly acquired 1B Lance Berkman hit a one-hopped into the shin of Alex Rodriguez. Now, that sucks, but you just gotta build a bridge and get over it.
But no, not A-Rod... If you're A-Rod, you hobble around for a few steps, then collapse to the ground like you were just shot. He rolled around the grass, covering his face, until his knights in shining armor, the training staff, came to aid this damsel in distress. A-Rod wasn't feeling up for a game of baseball later on.
Now look, I understand the Sox lost the game, but if you're a Yankee fan, don't try to tell me that makes up for A-Rod being a pussy. If the Sox take 3 out of 4, they'll be 4 games out of first place. If they split the series, their task will be to pick up one game a week for the rest of the season, and they'll have the AL East lead.
Tomorrow's game will be on ESPN at 8pm EST, with Josh Beckett (3-1, 5.70) facing A.J. Burnett (9-9, 4.93).
