Paraphrasing the words of Paul Weller and the Style Council, we note that last night Alex Rodriguez followed our telekinetic instructions and extended the sixth inning for the Toronto Blue Jays, leading to a 4-run rally and a one run deficit for the hated Bombers. But we’d be remiss not to note how the tabloids and, worse, the New York Times take the predictable road and pile on the poor guy today. Sure, A-Rod made a bad play, an inadvisable and somewhat risky one. But he made a bad play on a makeable and defensible one. He most certainly did not blow the game for the Yankees. That blame falls, in our eyes, to Mike Mussina, who crumbled in short order following A-Rod’s gaffe. We expect more from Tyler Kepner (who we think is one of the better beat writers in the city), though we’re not surprised by the tabs’ reaction. Still, it’s enough to make even a Sox fan frustrated, such are the misguided insults slung towards third base. Enough already.
