How hot is Alex Rodriguez? I got an email from a Bomber-rooting friend during last night’s game: “Must be better ‘n’ sex, the feeling he’s got.” This came after he reached out and parked a Boof Bonser 3-2 slider on the outside half deep over the left-field wall of the Metrodome, his sixth homer of the year. (Boof!) On the year, he’s at .357/.471/1.107, and has led the Yankees to league topping 51 runs. What’s more, after their rocky, cold-weather start, the team has allowed just 3 runs over the last 2 games, a stretch highlighted by a fine start from Carl Pavano on Monday and a 6-inning, 4-hit, 0-run gem from Andy Pettitte last night. Pettitte’s vicious sliding curve gave the Twins problems all night, especially on 2 strike counts. Tonight, Old Man Mussina tries to keep the line moving. We’re hoping for the best.
