Joe Girardi stuck to his guns, much to the chagrin of many outside of the Yankees clubhouse.
Alex Rodriguez batted third for the Bronx Bombers again on Wednesday night, though he was replaced in the ninth inning for pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez. While there had been a rising commotion from the rabble-rousers to drop the struggling slugger to somewhere lower in the lineup, A-Rod served as the designated hitter in the three-hole with New York hosting Baltimore in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Girardi's decision to keep Rodriguez in his spot in the lineup did not sit well with Donald Trump, who let the world hear his displeasure in a tweet:
Rodriguez was batting just .111 through the first two games of the team's first-round playoff series, going 1-for-9 with five strikeouts. He was 0-for-3 with two more strikeouts before being replaced in Game 3. If A-Rod doesn't turn things around, then he might need to start worrying about hearing Trump's infamous catch phrase.
