I'm certainly no fan of A-Rod, but...

Had a lot of hopes for A-rod back when.....thought he was the one to bust Barroids 'record'....but A-rod ended up having the same problem

That being said, A-rod should NOT buy that ball back. Let the Baaastin twerp eat it. He's gonna hit a few more. The next one's more important anyhow.... let MLB buy it.....they're the one's that allowed the Roids Era.

I'm thoroughly enjoying watching the Yankees feud with A-Rod. The Yanks made their bed. I'm even enjoying in a perverse way that Rodriguez is doing so well. The team just needs to lose more games for it to be a perfect situation.

Daily News doesn't trust it.

Nevertheless, he can do us all a favor now by sparing us the vow that this is all being done on the clean. Not after demonstrating for — who knows how long? – his ability to beat the system in baseball; to pass drug test after drug test, all while he was filling up his body with Anthony Bosch’s concoctions of undetectable designer performance-enhancers. (Only the most cynical of A-Rod watchers would suggest, after his horrendous previous game Wednesday in the Bronx, that he needed an extra day to start his new cycle.)

For if there was one thing we all learned in the aftermath of the Biogenesis scandal — in which most of the 13 suspended players, including A-Rod, never actually failed a drug test, except when he tested positive during that “survey year” in 2003 when it didn’t count, it was that comprehensive PED program or not, baseball players were still doing drugs, and who knows how many are also still getting away with it?

    • That's good.  Will give him something to do while he heals.
    • Huh? He's on pace to start under 100 games at Catcher.
    • Keith Law has him going late 1st round and doesn’t sound like a fan.   26. New York Yankees: Christian Moore, 2B, Tennessee Moore has probably performed his way into the first round, even though the underlying tools and instincts don’t support it. He’s hit 23 homers and has a .380/.446/.774 line (through Monday) as part of the Vols’ loaded lineup, where five hitters already have 15 or more homers. I could also see them on Ryan Waldschmidt or Jordan. Baseball America’s most recent mock had him going 19.  Some reservations about his defense. 19. Mets — Christian Moore, 2B, Tennessee Moore’s offensive consistency in his three years with Tennessee is impressive. He’s posted a 1.000 OPS or better in each season, has hit over .300 in each season and has managed double-digit homers in each season—with a career-best 28 homers in 2024. He did that while cutting his strikeout rate from 24-25% to 14.5%. There are real questions with how much he’ll be able to pick it at second base. Still, he has one of the more proven bats in the class and is getting tons of top-20 buzz.
    • I know we as fans put extra weight on this Yankee series but the pitching matchups tell you it's not of much if any extra importance to either club. Both are locks for the playoffs, playing an extra two or three games in a wild card series is not going to matter much. You have to win in the playoffs regardless. 
    • I believe it's his non-bowling hand.
    • Do we really need Adley to play Catcher every game ?  What’s wrong with putting McCann at catcher ?  Is it because he can’t hit like Adley can ?  I would split Adley between catcher and DH , so we don’t wear him down 
    • Cowser needs PAs & experience.  He’s a stud.  He needs to play everyday with an occasional rest day.
