Another night, another rout

Sorry for the delay in posting. Had to escape the Metrodome before the heavy rain started to fall.

A few tidbits for you night owls:

The Yankees have won 25 of their last 33 regular-season games at the Metrodome. … Derek Jeter’s stolen base tonight was No. 250 in his career, one behind Willie Randolph for second place in team history. … According to the stat dudes at Elias, Alex Rodriguez is the fourth player in the last 50 years to have an extra-base in each of the first seven games of the season. The others: Ken Griffey Jr. (1997), Phil Nevin (2001) and Larry Walker (2001).

I’d like to give you a bunch of exciting quotes from the postgame but there weren’t any.

Hear for yourself. Here is some audio from Alex Rodriguez:

One of us asked Alex if it was important to him to get off to a good start this season. All he said was, “No.”

No? I mean why wouldn’t it be? You would think that any player in any sport would want to get off to a good start, especially a player who is under the spotlight like Alex is.

What’s happens a lot of times is that when guys are hot, they don’t want to talk about it because they’re worried they’ll jinx it. No athletes are more superstitious than baseball players.

It’s weird, but quite often the best quotes you get are after losses or from players who are struggling.
