Phil: Why is everyone always picking on Alex Rodriguez, one of the finest players of our time? He’s become the Don Rumsfeld of baseball, belittled and loathed for not pulling off the impossible and blamed for problems out of his control. The Yankees lost to Detroit not because A-Rod didn’t hit. They lost because their starting pitching was lousy. As Yogi Berra should have told George Steinbrenner, 90 percent of baseball is pitching. Only the other half is hitting.
But go ahead, Phil, get rid of Rodriguez. I hear Drew Henson is available to replace him.
