|Having A Meeting|
"I think the Yanks and I crossed signals. I don't want any more mix-ups. I'm excited and ready to play and help this team win a championship. I feel great and I'm ready and want to be in the lineup Friday night. Enough doctors, let's play."
This, after the ridiculous back-and-forth between Rodriguez and the team over conflicting diagnoses of his quad injury. In contravention of the Basic Agreement, Rodriguez sought a second opinion without informing The Evil Ones. He obviously thinks he can play tomorrow—although most Yankee fans I know don't want him anywhere near the team ever again. Gotta love it.
