Alex Rodriguez does poorly in the playoffs...that's what he does.That said, fans are calling for New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi to move the struggling slugger down in the batting order."I trust our guys...I'm with them every day," the skipper said when asked about moving A-Rod. "Nothing that we do will be something that is just a knee-jerk reaction."But, when you consider that the three-time MVP is in the midst of a 1-for-9 postseason so far and hasn't hit a postseason homer in his last 87 plate appearances...the critics might be on to something.One of the most critical, "Johnny New York" himself...Donald Trump.Now, I'm not sure what Trump knows about baseball, steroids or, well, sports for that matter considering he ran the USFL into the ground and, just last year, allowed Jose Canseco to join the cast of "The Apprentice", but dude sure isn't afraid of letting everyone know his opinion.

  • A Rod is an all time great....over 600 career hrs. He is happy about Raul's 2 I am sure. Raul did great. Trump inherited his money so it's hard to admire him. He should probably shut up and be happy he got a free ride.
