Joe Girardi is sticking to his guns, much to the chagrin of many outside of the Yankees clubhouse. Alex Rodriguez will bat third for the Bronx Bombers again on Wednesday night. While there had been a rising commotion from the rabble-rousers to drop the struggling slugger to somewhere lower in the lineup, A-Rod will be playing DH in the three hole with New York hosting Baltimore in Game 3 of the ALDS. Girardi's decision did not sit well with Donald Trump, who let the world hear his displeasure in a tweet. A-Rod must be dropped in the Yankees line-up tonight if they want to win. He simply can't perform without drugs. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2012 Rodriguez is batting just .111 through the first two games of the team's first-round playoff series, going 1-for-9 with five strikeouts. A return home to Yankee Stadium might help what ails the former MVP, but if not ... well, then he might need to start worrying about hearing Trump's infamous catch phrase.
