A-Rod, Tex voice their displeasure

Mark Feinsand of the News has an interesting note today about A-Rod and Mark Teixeira confronting ESPN’s Rick Sutcliffe about something he said on the air that upset them.

I’m not saying that Sutcliffe is necessarily guilty of this, but fans would be astonished at how little work some announcers do and how little time they spend in the clubhouse talking to the players before or after games. They just wing it and say what they figure is right. The YES guys, particularly John Flaherty, Michael Kay, Ken Singleton and David Cone, do their homework. But some of the national guys let somebody else do it for them.

It’s certainly a player’s right to stand up for himself if he feels he has been wronged.


Meanwhile, the Yankees just took Adam Warren, a right-hander from UNC, with their fourth round pick and a Vanderbilt right-hander named Caleb Cotham in the fifth round. Tyler Kepner, a proud Commodore, will be thrilled.
