An A-Rod update: He's (almost) baaaaaack

Well, well, well, look at this: http://twitter.com/Yankees/status/351766152269135874

This is pretty big news because it means my prediction that Alex Rodriguez returning to the Yankees before Derek Jeter may actually happen.

And this news also makes the Brian Cashman/A-Rod STFU kerfuffle of last week look even more silly because, well, Alex will be playing tomorrow. He wasn't that far off from his prediction.

I sure hope Alex doesn't tweet how excited he is about playing in a real game because who knows what kind of reaction that will get from the masses. Heaven forbid.

At this rate, A-Rod with a bum hip would probably produce more than what the Yankees are currently throwing out there at third base (David Adams is currently sporting a .186/.252/.275/.527 line) so this is a good thing.
