Report: Alex Rodriguez a ‘long shot’ to play in 2017

Ever since Alex Rodriguez played his last game for the New York Yankees organization last Friday, speculation has run rampant about his future. The debate over whether or not A-Rod has in fact played in his last game has been fueled partly by how he has never used the word “retire” or some variation of it in the days that followed. Rodriguez’s publicist did put the kibosh...

The tragedy of A-Rod

I often wonder if Alex Rodriguez still thinks about the ninth inning of Game 4 in the 2004 American League Championship Series. The Yankees had a 4-3 lead when that inning began, a lead A-Rod helped build when his two-run home run broke a scoreless tie six innings earlier. The team was on the precipice of a second-straight pennant and an emphatic sweep of the rival Red Sox. It was...

A-Rod angry with Joe Girardi for going back on his word

As he moves closer to what will likely be the final game of his MLB career on Friday, Alex Rodriguez is not thrilled with New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi. A-Rod rode the bench on Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
