Alex Rodriguez was supposed to get a day off a month ago when the Yankees were in California. It's understandable why he hasn't, though it now seems time to give him a breather. He's had bad at-bats for the past few games. Last night, in particular, looked ripped out of the 2005-06 playoff handbook--missing fat pitches, chasing poor ones. Let's hope Torre rests him soon. Moreover, it'd be nice to see Posada get some time off as well.
Speaking of Jorge, I was e-mailing with Joe Sheehan last night and he posed the question: Has Posada ever had a great post-season? Not a fine isolated series--he was good last year against the Tigers--but a real strong couple of series?
Finally, here are a couple of things to check out: Joel Sherman's post about filling-in for S. Waldman on the radio last week; Jonah Keri on 100 players you love to hate, and John Heylar on Dr. James Andrews.
