After all the speculation that—one way or another—Alex Rodriguez had seen the last of his Yankee days, the Fraudulent One has fired back. Through two of his many rump-swab mouthpieces, he has made it clear that he's not going anywhere. The communique from CentaurLand went as follows: "Alex has no plans at all to retire. Alex says he's working diligently on his rehabilitation and is looking forward to getting back on the field as soon as possible.'' The response from the GM of the Pinstriped Posers? Brian Cashman uttered just one word: "Good". We couldn't agree more.
