Enjoy John Flaherty’s color commentary w/Michael Kay; but I disagree regarding “poor, hardworking ARod, who has not missed a day since his return from the DL…(or words to that effect).”

ARod is a bum! He takes pitches right over the plate for called strikes; or he pop’s up; or he hits into double-plays. Joe Girardi is afraid to move ARod from “clean-up.” He (ARod) strives to work a “walk” when we are looking to him to HIT the pitch SOMEWHERE (e.g., 6/17/09, tying run on 3rd, one out). I HOPE that he’s not spending some of his $27M/yr ‘buying’ good publicity from YES guys.
