The Horse Is At The Gate
Did you hear that, folks? The call to the post has been made and The Horse is ready to run again!
Tonight A-Rod will participate in his first "real" baseball activity since going on the DL, starting at DH for High-A Tampa. The plan is to DH him tonight and then use him in the field for 5-6 innings the next day to hopefully have him ready to re-join the Yankees some time next week. Obviously what's most important is that he comes through these first few rehab games feeling good and showing no negative side effects of the knee surgery. Given his injury history the last couple seasons, there's no need to rush him back into things and risk getting him nicked up again before the postseason.
But fuck that logical stuff, A-ROD IS BACK ON THE FIELD, BABY!!!! This team has been mashing everyone's dick in the dirt with Eduardo Nunez manning third base. Imagine how dirty they're going to be with A-Rod back at the hot corner and Chavez nailing down the DH spot.
