So The Horse has his most injury-plagued season ever, gets another new offseason workout program, tries some of the Kobe Bryant plasma treatment special on his knee, comes to camp, Tim Brown from Yahoo! writes a story about the impassioned speech he gave to the team prior to their ST opener, I write a piece based off that story yesterday telling people not to forget about A-Rod just yet, and he comes out and goes 3-3 with a monster opposite-field HR off of Roy Halladay on the first pitch he sees.

Is that how it works?  That sound about right?
