There's not an answer anywhere on the New York
Yankees right now. The starting pitching, with the exception of Kevin Brown, is lost. The hitters, from top to bottom, are clueless. The defense is
just bad. And still, after another loss, there is only one question: What about A-Rod?
This is what Alex Rodriguez wanted, the biggest stage on the biggest team with the biggest payroll in the biggest city with the biggest media corps
and the biggest fan base. He was going to stride on that stage, hog the spotlight, steal the show, get rave reviews every day in all the papers.And so
far, after a 5-2 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday, he hasn't done it. So what about him? It doesn't seem to make any difference that all the Yankees
are pressing, trying so hard, as Torre said after a second successive day spent inflicting unspeakable joy on Boston fans, We're squeezing sawdust out
of the ends of the bats. Yeah, yeah, sure, sure, Joe. We know that. But what about A-Rod?
