Trump calls out A-Rod on Twitter

The Donald has never been shy about sharing his opinions, even when no one wants to hear them, and now he thinks he knows more about putting together a lineup than Joe Girardi. 

Rodriguez back in Yanks' lineup, dropped to 6th

Alex Rodriguez returned to the Yankees' starting lineup for their AL championship series opener against Detroit on Saturday night, dropped to sixth in the batting order.

Manager Joe Girardi pinch hit for him in Game 3 and...

Machado not playing like a rookie

With one out in the 13th inning of Thursday night's ALDS Game 4, Orioles rookie Manny Machado stood at third base with Yankees star Alex Rodriguez -- pupil and teacher, side by side with a game and a series on the line. It was an improbable setting and an unlikely situation for the 20-year-old Machado. After all, just about two years ago -- before he was the third pick in the...

A-Rod benched for Game 5 vs. Orioles

Alex Rodriguez will start the New York Yankees' biggest game of the year on the bench. After being pinch hit for in Games 3 and 4 against the Baltimore Orioles, the $275 million third baseman was removed from the starting lineup for Game 5 on Friday. Eric Chavez is set to start at third base, while Game 3 star Raul Ibanez will be the designated hitter in the winner-take-all...

Ibanez hits for A-Rod, homers twice in Yankees win

Down by a run in an all-even AL division series, Joe Girardi approached Alex Rodriguez and told baseball's highest-paid player he was going to pinch hit for him. Bold move, benching one of the game's great sluggers. ''I just had a gut feeling,'' the Yankees manager said. ''I just went to him and I said, `You're scuffling a little bit right now...

Vote: Should Raul Ibanez Start Over Alex Rodriguez for the Yankees in Game 4?

For one night, Raul Ibanez was the greatest hitter of all time. Pinch-hitting for Alex Rodriguez -- who many predicted would someday hold that title -- in the bottom of the ninth, Ibanez launched a home run into the right-field stands at Yankee Stadium to tie the game. Then, improbably, impossibly, he hit another in the 12th inning, sending New York into a frenzy and the Yankees...

A-Rod benched for Game 5

Alex Rodriguez will not be in the starting lineup for the New York Yankees tonight in Game 5 of the ALDS. A-Rod has had a terrible series, going 2-16, including 9 strikeouts. We have lost count of how many swings and misses. For as bad as A-Rod has been, Robinson Cano is 2-18, Nick Swisher [...]

Raul is cool, A-Rod gets pulled, and the Yankees win

What a night! Squawker Jon and I were on the phone in the ninth inning, when we saw that Raul Ibanez had taken Alex Rodriguez's place in the lineup. We barely had time to digest it when we saw that Ibanez hit a homer to tie the game. Then, to make things even more unbelievable, he of course did something that has never been done in a postseason game before -- hitting a home run...

Thoughts On A-Rod, Washington Nationals And Playoffs

This has been a compelling postseason and it is getting more intriguing with each day. At the start of the season I projected the Giants and Yankees to meet in the World Series, and that’s still in play. The Yankees’ showing makes them hard to figure out, but one thing is for certain, and that’s things will never be the same for Alex Rodriguez and how he’ll respond to being...

The Three Stooges bring about the most humiliating, frustrating and painful loss since 2004

After last night's game, I couldn't sleep. Too angry. Too frustrated. If I owned a nuclear bomb, I would have driven to New York and blown up the city. That's how mad I was. (Note to world: Never give me control of a nuclear bomb.) Finally, I drifted off to Cougar Town, clutching one thin tendril of Yankee hope:Somehow, over the winter, the Yankees get rid The Three Stooges...

Expect Yankees manager Joe Girardi to make lineup changes

The Yankees may be forced to make lineup changes for today's deciding game five against the Orioles in the elimination game. They may take Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson out of the starting lineup and replace with Eric Chavez and Raul Ibanez. A-Rod and Granderson have been terrible in this entire series going 3 for 30 combined versus Orioles pitching. That's why...
