• Will A-Rod Be Stuck On #599 For A While Now Thanks To Blake Wood?

    Well, for sure, I don’t think those who stuck out a 2 hour and 32 minute rain delay at Yankee Stadium were hoping to see this in the 8th inning today, for sure…

    It’s 6:40 pm EST now.  We’ll have to wait and see if Wood plunking Alex Rodriguez will cause A-Rod to miss a lot of time…

    Update 7:15 pm ET: Per Joe Girardi in the post-game, Alex has a bruise on his hand and there’s no plan for any X-rays. That’s good and strange news. Nice to see it’s not worse. Weird considering the Yankees usually send a guy to the hospital for a battery of tests and scans when he just has something as minor as jock-itch…

      I’m kinda surprised we didn’t see someone (Joba, maybe?) go back out and plunk someone. The Royals were desperately trying to avoid history (they had gone up-and-in on Alex all game and twice in his final at-bat) and they may have cost Alex some playing time.

      Oh, and if the game had been called in the 6th, this wouldn’t have happened. Sigh.

      Apparently not. Both Joe and A-Rod think he’ll be back in the lineup tomorrow.

      A-Rod said the trainers tested the strength in the arm where he got hit, and he had full strength so I assume they interpreted that as no structural damage.

      Yanks also delayed 3 hrs by rain, on getaway day. He might have the X-Rays done tomorrow if he feels anything.
