Report that Miami in talks with the Yankees to get A-Rod with Yankees picking up the majority of the money and taking Heath Bell back. Yankees have become really dysfunctional all of a sudden. ITS THE PLAYOFFS. Wtf....trade him sure but this shit couldn't wait till next week and it couldn't be prevented from leaking?

The other equally crappy players aren't making anything near what A-Rod is. A-Rod is supposed to be a franchise player and he's playing like Rey Ordonez.


Quote:
If we strip away the bullshit, essentially the Yankees suspended A-Rod in a playoff series for a game for not concentrating on a game after being removed from the game. That's retarded. And i'm not a Yankee fan and i HATE A-Rod.


That doesn't explain game 5 against Baltimore.

A-Rod and Granderson are benched for Game 4. I realize they can't replace a guy like Cano in the lineup, but it seems like I haven't heard ANY criticism of him. All of it has been focused on A-Rod it seems, but Cano is batting 3-36 and he was going intot he post season with a hot bat.

They want Arod gone, they don't want Cano gone. Cano is moody, they are not going to screw with him,

Matheny with an...interesting double switch there. Got out of the inning though.

Also if they Yanks pay most of A-Rod's contract AND take on Heath Bell, then I would be indifferent to the move. It'll really just go to show that the front office is just focused on boosting ticket sales without winning anything.

Cano was also one of the best players in the entire league this year. He is taking flack for this slump but he is the best player on that team. He should be batting 2nd or 3rd every single game they play.

Don't get me wrong, I totally understand that. It's just that A-Rod was getting railed on when he was the best player in the league as well for his playoff performances. Cano is getting very little flack for his performance, he has the longest playoff hit-less streak in MLB history and has performed below any of A-Rods past playoff performances. Perhaps the amount of money Rodriguez is getting paid has something to do with it, I'm just really surprised that I haven't heard more regarding Cano's performance.

It will be interesting to see whether or not A-Rod has taken his final at bat as a Yankee. It's an interesting story right now, but I can tell that it's gonna be one of those things that dominates the entire offseason.

I'm several days late on this, but I haven't been posting lately. I'm very disappointed that the Reds have chosen to extend the contract of Dusty Baker. Sure, he led the Reds to 97 wins, and the players like him, but at some point, you gotta start raising the standard in town. To blow a 2-0 series lead is unacceptable. Also, the 1-8 record in clinching games really stands out.

I didn't agree with his decision to start Mike Leake in game 4, I felt he left Latos in too long in game 5, and I hated seeing guys like Frazier/Heisey rot on the bench, while Rolen/Stubbs took the playing time at those respective positions. Overall, it was obvious that Bochy worked him over.

I realize it's not all HIS fault they fell apart, but someone needed to pay for what happened. Division titles have to stop be "good enough" at some point.
