A-Rod and Sports Illustrated

Just received my issue of Sports Illustrated in the mail and again we are dealing with another saga in the A-Rod soap opera. This time it’s the book “A-Rod” by SI writer Selena Roberts. There’s also more saga about his alleged steroid use and that it began when he was in high school. The Yankees are already hurting and don’t need the added distraction of a book. Really can’t blame A-Rod this time because he didn’t write the book and he finally said to the media that he “doesn’t want to go there.”

I don’t mean to be hard on Joe Girardi, but I think he needs to take control of a team that’s hurting. Girardi was given a good thing, after a long winning career with Joe Torre, and I want to see him be successful. 

Will be off a couple of days to see Keith Urban at the Mohegan Sun arena with my girlfriend. Not much into country, but my girlfriend is a huge fan.

Until then, see you in Monkeyville!

P.S. Monkeyville is Keith Urban’s fan club.

The Girardi Watch

The chants have begun. The media is starting also. It has come to the point, that Joe Girardi’s job maybe in danger. The New York Daily News back headline reads: “Torre We Want You Back!” The Yankees this season are 0-5 against the Boston Red Sox and have looked horrible, with A-Rod and his book destined back this week or next. 

Folks, the time has come as the Yankees are hurting and need someone to manage the team better. No, Torre is not coming back, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Bobby Valentine take over. With a new stadium and all, the Yankee fans deserve better.

Until then, see ya at the park!
