Welcome to the new offseason segment. I will try to do this once again. It has been a slower winter than the previous two years, however it is starting to pick up.
Anybody miss the live action yet? Yes there is still the Japan exhibition series and the Arizona Fall League, but for the people like myself, I live and die for the major league action.
I would much rather watch Major League Baseball any day of the week. It is not that I begrudge anyone for attending Minor League attendance, heck in some campaigns, the Minor Leagues have outdrawn the MLB.
This will be sort of like the good, the bad and the ugly from (insert show here). Read the rest of this entry

I have finally had it…. I never like talking about PED use or anything in the near vicinity of the topic., however A – Rod’s antics over the last 2 weeks have driven me over the edge.
I am going to say this fast and smooth, so there are no delusions or equivocations about my stance on the subject.
Its 4th and 40 A – Rod!! I beg the Yankees to facilitate a plan to punt you.
The ill-advised maneuvers that Alex Rodriguez has been running with from his legal consortium has me questioning the man’s intellect.
I firmly believe that A – Rod has switched off of his drugs – and now resorts to inhaling a ‘platter of dumb’ every night for his dinner.
So here is how I would the Yankees so deal with #13.
1. Let him play out right now – until you are eliminated from playoff contention. This stops any leverage A – Rod and his contingency has towards making the Yankees and the MLB be out to be a bad guy.
I also believe that while it is blasphemy that the ‘cheater’ is able to play right now based on the CBA, and JDA, this was collectively bargained in by the players in the last labor negotiations.
The players have already been heard to amend stiffer penalties from guys who abuse the drug policy in the future.
Once the team is not going to play in the Post Season, sit Rodriguez on the bench.
The Yankees May Have to pay A – Rod, but they don’t have to play him. Alex may not get a chance to redeem himself.
