What's interesting is that Yankee fans are embracing him. And the Yankees, by being hostile because they signed him to a massive deal and want him to quit so they don't have to pay him, are making themselves the villain and A-Rod more sympathetic. Quite a trick, making A-Rod sympathetic.

All the tricks the Yankees are trying and failing at regarding Arod are quite comical really...


Sign guy (that they knew the price already)... use him... then try to get out of the rest of contract... lol brilliant

Yeah, he's a scumbag but they signed the deal. Trying to worm out of it makes them look bad and somehow makes him sympathetic. Doesn't hurt that he's playing surprisingly well. Who'd a thunk it?

Fuck A-roid and his team. They deserve each other.

And Mays will always be superior to A-roid, period.

As a casual Yankee / baseball fan

I agree. I said when they signed him, the 1st time, it was a bad idea / deal.

But I think the Yanks didn't want the Sux to get him.

Yes he's playing OK & Yes he's a fraud & a mental midget, but if he helps them win ...

BTW - Mays was the man as well as Hank!

Barry Bonds can blow me too...

I am surprised as hell how well he is playing... can't stand a lot of the contracts in baseball...so he is no different than the Mike Hamptons of the league...except he has done something

Sports fans everywhere. We'll rationalize most anything if the player helps our team win.
