One Yankee official, commenting on Alex Rodriguez in tonight's lineup said, "It's going to be a circus." That characterization is actually quite appropriate, given A-Rod's Friday comment about the Yankees trying to get around paying him, "I think that's the pink elephant in the room." Of course, The Fraudulent One got the saying wrong, but that just makes it more enjoyable. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, Rodriguez will be the only suspended player to appeal the penalty—allowing him to appear in the lineup for The Evil Ones tonight in Chicago. I guess that makes him the "pink elephant in the room".
