Wow, the New York sports media will do anything to stir up nonsense about Alex Rodriguez.
This time it’s Bob Raissman of the Daily News who thinks it’s very telling that Alex wasn’t in the Sandlot video that the Yankees put out last week and that it somehow means that he’s being alienated by his team.
Hey! You know who else wasn’t in the video? Mark Teixeira. Oh, and Carlos Beltran. Are they being alienated too?
Here’s how the article starts:
Anyone else wondering why Alex Rodriguez did not perform in the Yankees’ recent video re-enactment of the Babe Ruth scene from the 1993 movie “The Sandlot?”
Hmmm, not really. I saw the video and the first thing I thought about was how funny it was, not why Alex wasn’t in the video. In fact, the thought never even crossed my mind.
An appearance by Rodriguez in the video would be tantamount to Yankees brass giving him their true stamp of approval and officially welcoming him back into the fold as a member in good standing.
