It must be the pants. After consecutive days in which he had folded in the clutch, A-Rod came through with the walk-off granny today to cap an improbable comeback and rescue Kei Igawa from complete ignominy. Giambi also came through with a huge blow. Alex has been torching the ball thus far, and this is just what he needed to put a lid on the tabloid crap—at least for a while.
Okay. Now if we could just get someone to throw 6 decent innings and a competent defense, we might just have something here.
