Look, this is silly, but keep reading, maybe it could make alittle sense.
Alex Rodriguez... really down on him. There was plenty of chatter on Twitter during the playoffs that Alex needed to get traded, he needed to be a permanent designated hitter. That his days were numbered in New York and he should be traded to the Miami Marlins. We even heard that from this point forward, Alex will no longer hit against righty pitching, read HERE. There was also a story yesterday that said that Joe Girardi reached out to Alex Rodriguez, the first time since the postseason when Joe pulled him out of the lineup, to see if ARod was "OK", read HERE. For the record, I don't think that a story about a manager calling a player is actually a story, but whatever. The point is, once again in the postseason, Alex Rodriguez is a no show and once again, questions are raised about him.
Eric Chavez decides that he doesn't want to come back? And what if the Yankees are truly worried about the hitting of Alex Rodriguez against right handed pitching and maybe him breaking down as the years go on. If Kevin Youklis became available on the free agent market, like it appears he will be, would you try and snag him?
It's being reported that the White Sox have decided that they will not pick up the Kevin Youkilis option for 2013, worth $13 million, read HERE. Now, sure, the White Sox will re-approach Youk and see if they can work out another deal, a cheaper deal and try and bring him back, but the guy will no doubt be in demand and in turn, it could drive up the price.
