The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorThe Yankees' treatment of Alex Rodriguez during the ALCS is an embarrassment and disgrace to not only A-Rod but the best fans in the sport. A player of his talent should not be publicly humiliated and emasculated. We all know A-Rod's history and some of the questionable decisions he has made. However, making him the scapegoat at the expense of the betterment of the team is unacceptable. There is no way possible that the Yankees are better with him sitting on the bench. Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi need to move on. I have lost all respect for both of them, and they have done the impossible: made A-Rod a tragic figure in the eyes of Yankees fans.
