Lot going on in Yankeeland right now. They're exceeding expectations early despite non-stop injury problems, and traveling out to Colorado to play a series in a National League park with what could be a severely shortened roster. They've got 2 pitches expected to carry the load struggling with velocity and command problems, a pitcher most weren't sure what to expect from pitching lights out, and an early AL MVP candidate in Robbie Cano. No shortage of legitimate, relevant topics to write about with respect to this team right now, which can mean only one thing... It's time for some good old-fashioned A-Rod trolling!!!!
Alex Rodriguez was part of the parade of injured rehabees who made the trek to the team's Tampa complex yesterday, and of course that got every MSM beat writer aflutter as their A-Rodars started beeping out of control. Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record took it a step further with a truly asinine article about the Yankees being better off without A-Rod. I know I shouldn't link to this, because this type of attention and cheap pageviews is exactly what Klap is going for, but I can't help it. Something this stupid needs to be given its moment to be recognized for its stupidity and then torn apart for it.
