A-Rod to Eat at Kids’ Table

If A-Rod makes good on his promise threat to show up at spring training, like the bad fairy in a Brothers Grimm tale, the Yankees don’t have to let him into their major league camp.

Since he’s not on their 40-man roster because of his suspension, they can send him to minor-league camp.

Quote of the Day

“The Yankees would rather fly the Boston Red Sox’s World Series flags at Yankee Stadium than see Rodriguez step on the field again.

“The Yankees are disgusted by him. They want him out of their lives. And they want Major League Baseball to suspend Rodriguez into eternity.

“The Yankees no longer are concerning themselves with the race to win the American League East, but the race to see whether Commissioner Bud Selig can banish Rodriguez before he gets healthy.”

A-Rod Facing 100 Game Suspension

Even if his hip heals, it doesn’t look as if A-Rod will be on the field this season.  The MLB is seeking to suspend him (and 19 other players, including Yanks’ catcher Francisco Cervelli) 100 games for their connection to a clinic in Florida that provided them performance-enhancing drugs.

As I’ve said before, A-Rod will never play again for the Yanks.
