    From the CT Post:

    Alex Rodriguez wore a navy blue T-shirt with the words “Grind it” written across the front as he stood at the end of the tunnel leading to the Yankees clubhouse and answered questions for a postgame radio interview Saturday afternoon.

    Grind it. That sure sounded like the theme of a ninth inning in which the Yankees should have been finished, left to wonder if they would lose a game on the Red Sox in the AL East.

    Grind it. Well, in 2001, Schilling said that Mystique and Aura were strippers. Maybe Grind it makes sense?

    Still, the thought that A-Rod might be channeling Eric Nies here is sorta chilling – and not in the good chillin’ kind of way.

    Personally, when I hear Grind it, I think of the Sam and Diane thing from Cheers: Did you grind the beans? Yes, but I didn’t grind them fine.

    A-Rod can grind them anyway he wants – as long as the Yankees keep winning.

      Didn’t Posada make these t-shirts? As a cowboy up sort of an effort. See here:

      Thanks Billy! I was not aware of that.

      What’s next? Boozing before games out of the game cup?

      I like to think of it more as Mariano Duncan’s “We play today we win today. Das it.”

      Is A-Rod a true Yankee yet?

      The question doesn’t even come up anymore in these camps.
