In the early morning hours, KD posted this scoop to I'm Bill White's A-Rod wastebasket entry:Just back from the Bronx and you won't find anything like this for sale in any of the in-Stadium stores. No A-Rod tee shirts, no A-Rod posters, photos, bobbleheads, whatever. (But you can buy a Youk shirt if you want such a thing.And get this: went into the Steiner store and even his autographed ball is gone! An empty spot is all that is left. Nothing A-Rod even in Steiner.A-Rod has been purged. And the Yanks say they want him back as soon as possible. Anyone believe that ********?This team will sell anything. Its warning to copyright pirates is sponsored by a law firm. Pitches that paint the corners are sponsored by CertaPro Painters, where painting is personal. The Yankees even sell dirt. A Steinbrenner refusing to take money for an A-Rod shirt? That's the nightmare image that jolts you awake.* * * Today's birthdays: Jerry Van **** (82), Alex Rodriguez (38), Yahoo Serious (60).
