A-rod still has a big defender on the "Cirque du Pinstripes"*
"There was one Yankee who bridged the differences between A-Rod and the team captain. There was one Yankee who could support Rodriguez without alienating Jeter.
- But Gary Sheffield is now a Detroit Tiger after an off-season trade orchestrated by Cashman. Out with the cantankerous Sheffield, in with fresh-faced options.
“Any time you play with someone for multiple years, you’re not just teammates, you become friends,” Jeter said.
“Shef was down here in Tampa, so we spent a lot of time together in the off-season. So, yeah, you’re going to miss Shef.”"
SELENA YOU MISSED ONE. A-ROD HAS ANOTHER WELL-PUBLICIZED BRIDGE ON THE TEAM--MARIANO RIVERA. This item was widely written about just 3 months ago. Or, is it the usual oversight of a long-time franchise player?
(From Newsday)'Speaking Thursday (11/2) at the upscale New Rochelle steakhouse that he co-owns, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera defended teammate Alex Rodriguez after another poor postseason by A-Rod and the team.
- "I love A-Rod," he said Thursday at Mo's New York Grill. "I love the guy. He's done a tremendous job. It's not easy being himself ... It's tough. They don't give the guy a break ... New York doesn't give him a break."
- (Unless she believes Jeter doesn't like Mo. Anything's possible).
- (Chazz Palminteri's picture is here in case you didn't see the post just before this one, regarding his support of Mo).
