So Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees aren’t happy with Buck Showalter and the Rangers… isn’t that just too damn bad! Now A-Rod is really just about the only Yankee I like, but many of the New York Yankees, led by the whining of Rodriguez, are upset that Buck took out Michael Young, Mark Teixeira and Hank Blalock in the 3rd inning of Sunday’s game against Anaheim. Showalter pulled each in succession after they reached base to recognize each and allow the fans to acknowledge their great year of all three. The Rangers loss to the Angels combined with the Yankees being blown out by Boston allowed Anaheim to have home field advantage in the first round match-up between New York and Anaheim. Just a thought here, but if New York starts Mike Mussina instead of Jaret Wright on Sunday as originally planned, maybe they don’t get blasted out of Fenway Park in the first inning causing them to totally give up the rest of the game. Don’t blame the Rangers when you can’t even take care of your own business! Another thought for Torre and his Spankees, how bout winning a few more games against Tampa Bay?!?! They went 8-11 vs. the second worst team in the AL. All that with a $200M payroll, more than double any other teams… Cry me a river A-Rod, just try not to let it ruin your MVP year.
