Is There an End to Yankees/A-Rod Drama?
You were expecting another player and another team? Here’s the most banal prediction of the baseball year: New York and national media members will spend an inordinate number of column inches on a broken-down 37-year-old who hasn’t hit 20 home runs since 2010. Mostly, the infatuation is with the Yankees’ predicament — more than $100 million in future salary commitments, a fresh round of PED questions, and no easy answers. Ironically, the Rangers and Nationals are the teams with actual concerns about the South Florida steroid scandal; they don’t want to be without Nelson Cruz and Gio Gonzalez, who could face suspensions.
