Alex Rodriguez blasted his way into Yankee legend last night, with the kind of game few players have ever experienced. Three home runs and ten runs batted in in one night will do that for you. In just two NY papers, the Times and the News, I found one, two, three, four, five, and six articles on his accomplishment, and they’re all saying the same thing; Now, he’s a Yankee.
It’s funny how a guy can go 175 games of Gold Glove defense at a new position, be just about as good a hitter as there is at his position, and it’s only after he has a 3 HR, 10 RBI night that he’s arrived. New York, just like I pictured it.
