Inside the Yankees fridge, there’s a plethora of leftovers. The lobster isn’t fresh. The filet mignon is long gone. But, this is it. Hal’s done shopping.
The man considered MLB’s true home run king told Newsday earlier this week that he wants to see A-Rod come back strong after serving a yearlong suspension for PEDs.
Alex Rodriguez started his second day of workouts at the Yankees’ minor league complex by hugging Chase Headley, the player signed to replace him at third base.
“He’s learned nothing,” an unnamed baseball exec told the New York Daily News. “He’s the same old guy. He just did what he wanted to do.”
Days after releasing a handwritten apology to fans, A-Rod may have created another reason to say he’s sorry by not giving his bosses a heads up that he was en route to spring training.
Alex Rodriguez reported to the New York Yankees three days ahead of schedule. He spoke for 8 1/2 minutes about his season-long drug suspension.
No matter how much the Yankees don’t want Alex Rodriguez’s return to baseball to be a distraction at spring training, this isn’t their first rodeo. They know it will be and they are prepared for it.
It’ll be A-Rod, A-Rod, A-Rod all spring. And that, ironically, means good news for the pitchers and anyone else who doesn’t wear No. 13.
This isn’t just about A-Rod or the public’s contempt for him. This is a treatise on the fall of two empires — A-Rod the man and brand, and the Yankees.
Alex Rodriguez is really sorry, you guys. You can feel it in his smooth cursive. Unfortunately (for him), Twitter exists.
Alex Rodriguez did some more apologizing on Tuesday, but this story is far from over.
Alex Rodriguez says he’s sorry “for the mistakes that led to my suspension” but has failed to detail any specifics about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
The former owner of the South Florida clinic that supplied performance-enhancing substances to Major League Baseball players and other athletes has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.
I love classic rock, but I cannot listen to the Yankees play the same Boston and Bad Company songs again. They need to become more of a progressive college radio station.
Chase Headley says Alex Rodriguez has “reached out and introduced himself.” Headley was signed to a $52 million, four-year contract by the Yankees, who plan to start him at third and shift A-Rod to DH.
