IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorI have never been more embarrassed in my life to be a Yankees fan. I can only hope the Steinbrenners and Randy Levine issue a public apology to the fans, because we're owed one. We're also owed a new manager, new hitting coach (goodbye Kevin Long!), and a large chunk of new players. This postseason has been a complete joke and has embarrassed this city. George Steinbrenner is probably rolling over in his grave. BRIAN RAPPAPORT New York, N.Y.

CALL IN A FAVOR
In order to not bruise his slugging superstar's already-deflated ego, Joe Girardi reportedly called the Yankee Stadium PA announcer to ask him to not mention Alex Rodirguez's name when he was being pinch-hit for.
I started this series with a look at the outfield. Now I will tackle the infield:Robinson CanoEric ChavezDerek JeterCasey McGeheeJayson NixEduardo NunezAlex RodriguezMark TeixeiraIt will be shocking if Cano's team option is not picked up. Eric Chavez did not show up for the postseason, but he was a good backup infielder in 2012. He will be 35 years old going into the 2013 season...
Poor Alex Rodriguez, as this guy cannot get a break.

As even though the New York Yankees season ended so embarrassingly almost two weeks ago, A-rod is still getting blamed but now for other teams poor play.
The latest and most ridiculous accusation is that because of A-rod’s stale bat in the ALCS...
END OF THE ROAD?
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that the legendary closer "doesn’t know what he is doing yet" as it relates to whether or not he'll return next season.
The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorAfter the Yankees lost to the Tigers, Alex Rodriguez was quoted as saying, "I'll be back." I hope he meant for Old-Timer's Day. JOHN BUONAGURA Stewart Manor, N.Y.
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...
Mariano Rivera vowed some months ago that despite tearing his ACL, he would return to pitch again in the major leagues. Now, it appears that he's not so sure.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman spoke with ESPN.com's Andrew Marchand on Friday, and he indicated that Rivera still hasn't decided on his future.
"He wasn't certain on what he is...
It's no secret that Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily throughout the 2012 postseason, but the common refrain was that at least he was saying the right things and acting like a good teammate amid all the attention. At least, of course, until that little incident where A-Rod apparently hit on a fan behind the Yankees' dugout, which called into question his focus and intensity...
New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi requested that the team's public address announcer not mention Alex Rodriguez's name when he was pinch-hit for during the American League Championship series, according to CBSSports.com. Typically, announcements include the pinch hitter and the player he is replacing in the lineup. Girardi reportedly called the press box when Eric...
I know this is blaspheme, but for once, let's not be cheerful and optimistic: Does anybody really expect Mariano Rivera to come back in 2013 and pitch an entire season at the level that befits his career? Because I sure don't. I think there's a better chance of Ann Coulter winning a sportsmanship medal at the Special Olympics. When Mariano shredded his knee last spring...
Yankees manager Joe Girardi knew he had to pinch hit for his slumping ex-superstar Alex Rodriguez during the ALCS -- and he didn't want A-rod to face further fan wrath. The NY Post reports that on at...

It’s not a feat that’s accomplished much, but the 1996 New York Yankees were in fact the last team to rally from what looked like a catastrophic 0-2 deficit to win the World Series. So, yes Detroit, this can happen. … Continue reading →
