A Statement from A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez has released a statement:

“I think the Yankees and I crossed signals. I don’t want any more mixups. I’m excited and ready to play and help this team win a championship I feel great and I’m ready and want to be in the lineup Friday night. Enough doctors, let’s play.”

Interesting.

And this comes on the heels of a story from the Daily News about a nameless Yankee player who is sick of the ‘A-Rod Circus.’ Well, the fans are sick of watching the lineup not score and look terrible against mediocre pitching but we all can’t get what we want.

If we did, the world would be a boring place.
