• No April Fool’s, A-Rod To Attend Yanks Home Opener

    Alex Rodriguez has been rehabbing his surgically repaired hip in New York and Miami throughout spring training, but is expected to join his teammates for the April 1 opener against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

    A-Rod has not started baseball activity after surgery in mid-January to repair a torn labrum and impingement in his left hip, working on a physical therapy program for the past two months.

    “He’s doing everything he needs to be doing,” GM Brian Cashman said. “I’m not sure when his actual rehab-to-field-activity will take place. I don’t have that yet.”

    A-Rod’s rehab will likely move to Tampa once he picks up a baseball, but Joe Girardi — who keeps in touch with A-Rod via text messaging — said he expects to see his third baseman in the Bronx on Opening Day.

    “I’d like to see him,” Girardi said. “He says his rehab is going well. He feels pretty good. He’s doing more and more every week I talk to him.”

    Ugh. Just what the team needs – with all the media around Opening Day, especially against the Red Sox, and A-Rod is going to turn it into a circus by finally coming out of his Biogenesis cave bunker. It should be a feeding frenzy. Of course, that’s right in the sweet spot for this narcissistic ass-clown, #13 in your Yankees program…

      I think this is a “no-win” situation for A-Rod. If he stays away, he gets accused of not supporting his teammates at the start of the season, of not caring about the Yankess because he’s not playing. If he shows up, he draws all the attention because of the ongoing PEDs issue and his age-injuries. Choose your poison, Alex.

      @ Scout:
      Was he there for Opening Day in 2009? I have to check that one.

      A-Rod was not announced with the non-starters when the new Stadium opened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub1FM1lGOuI

      So, if he could miss the opening of the “new Yankee Stadium!” when he was injured and coming off the Selena Roberts thing, then he can miss this Opener while he is injured and coming off the Biogenesis thing.

      I stand by my point — he looks bad either way.

      The front office stooges asked A-Rod to be there with his woman to provide filler for the moat seats.

      LOL.

      I wonder if A-Rod will be trying to pick up any chicks from the dugout that day like he did during the post-season?
