From the San Francisco Chronicle -
A-Rod, in his fourth Yankee season, says he finally likes New York.
“As far as comfort level in New York,” he said, explaining his splendid first half, “I’ve always said it may take some people a year, half a year, but for me it’s taken three or four years to get comfortable in New York, and I’m there now.
“At the end of the day it’s just a game, and you’ve gotta enjoy the game, and I’ve kind of gone back to that this year, keep it more simple and enjoy the game, enjoy my teammates, enjoy the city of New York.”
But a few minutes earlier he said, “I love San Francisco, man. I was really looking forward to making the (All-Star) team, and I think it’s gonna be an awesome event.”
What does he like about the City?
“First of all, I love the stadium, this is one of my favorite stadiums.”
Love it? Crikeys! The only other time Rodriguez played here, with the Mariners in 2000, he went 6-for-11 in three games, with a homer and 5 RBIs!
The man was born to play in the cool, gray city of love. He’s DiMaggio with a better suntan.
“I love where it (the ballpark) is in the city,” Rodriguez added, “and I love the vibe of the city, it’s kind of like a West Coast New York, only with better weather in the summertime.”
I told you. Just watch, if Alex opts out at year-end, the Giants are going to be an option for him.
