In case you haven’t heard the breaking news this morning, Alex Rodriguez is going to be out of comission for 10 weeks.
That hip cyst really festered into a big problem. A problem for the Yankees, a problem for fantasy owners that took A-Rod #2 overall (I would have taken him if he was there at 3, but I lucked out).
So A-Rod the China Doll can sit around for a while and think about how karma is a bitch. It’s funny because just last night we were laughing about A-Rod, saying that he ran his home run trots like a thoroughbred.
This also means that if your team has a third baseman who is healthy; the Yankees are going to offer prospects for his services for these 10 weeks. No shit, I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see the Yankees (and AS I TYPE THIS the possibility is mentioned on Sportscenter by Buster Olney! Unreal!) go out and get a third baseman.
And this is sick, why would you go out and get a third baseman for 10 weeks? Just use someone who is on your team for Christ sakes.
