Alex Rodriguez made a heads-up play in the top of ninth yesterday which the Yankees used to score an extra three runs to secure a much-needed win against Toronto and avoid a second consecutive sweep.
With two out and the Yankees leading 7-5 Rodriguez probably shouted "MINE" as he advanced from second to third on a high infield fly. The Blue Jays third baseman fell for it. Posada was safe and Giambi hit a three run bomb to make it 10-5.
With the way the Yankees are playing and the bullpen, including Rivera, is pitching you take whatever advantage you can.
This isn't Little League. This is THE SHOW.
I did NOT appreciate that Jeter, according to the Post, let Rodriguez twist a bit. Whatever happened to defending your teammates a la Graeme Lloyd?
Just one thing Alex - if you did say "MINE" there's no shame in admitting it. Because there's nothing wrong with it.
