Don't listen to all the politically-correct rhetoric coming from Yankee players about Alex Rodriguez. According to The New York Daily News, A-Fraud's Empire teammates are privately throwing him under the proverbial bus. Off-the-record, one of them stated, "Guys are just tired of it. The media circus that’s revolving around Alex is insane — and we haven’t even seen him. It just keeps going. It’s like a carousel that just keeps going around and around and around. At some point, it has to stop. I would like his bat in the lineup. We could obviously use it because the potential for some home runs would help us a lot. But with the circus that’s surrounding him right now, I don’t think anybody wants that. When it’s all said and done, you’ll hear more than enough comments from the guys in here. You’ll be able to write it for weeks." Feel the looooooooooove.
