A-Rod ripped in his hometown

A-Rod is getting roasted on the south Florida airwaves and in some papers for not playing last night. Apparently there is some conspiracy afoot. One writer called it a “stunning” decision. It seems he owed it to the hometown crowd to play.

Either that or he’s hitting .145 in June with no power and the Yankees were tired of having a clean-up hitter who wasn’t able to clean anything up.

Because of his checkered past, no issue is ever black and white with Alex. There are myriad shades of gray. But in this case, he’s wrongly accused. He’s slumping, he’s worn down and the Yankees are giving him a rest. Period.

It’s too bad it’s here, but the Yankees have to be concerned about the Yankees, not entertaining south Floridians.
