by Stephen Jones
Sure he has Hall-of-Fame numbers, but now
he is baseball’s highest-paid albatross.
He’s swinging on “Empty,” a total loss
this Yankee post-season – more able to do
interviews at any length, all the time
a zero at home plate. But is he phased
by this at all? He – and his contract – say No.
Tabloid dailies, quickly discarded, chime
back page, with inky banners:
A-Rod should be “A-Goner.”
