A.J. Burnett didn’t have a great night, but it was good enough, thanks to Melky Cabrera’s tie-breaking single in the 8th inning, leading the Yankees to a 7-4 win over the Angels. Maybe Cabrera has won his job back with the way he has been playing lately.
Good to see Robinson Cano extend his hitting streak to 17 games. I hope he keeps up the good work!
At least one of my teams is doing (relatively) well!

More A-Rod (or is it A-Roid?) drama — According to a report in the New York Daily News, Selena Roberts’ upcoming book claims that Alex Rodriguez not only used steroids when he was with the Rangers from 2001-2003, but he also allegedly used them after he joined the Yankees. The book also claims that he used them as far back as high school, according to a high school teammate. The article in the Daily News says A-Rod is portrayed in the book as “a needy personality who wanted his ego stroked constantly.” I don’t know about the claims of additional steroids use, but A-Rod certainly does seem like someone who needs constant ego-stroking.
While I wouldn’t be surprised if A-Rod did use steroids in high school, I can’t help but wonder about the former teammate who made that claim. Perhaps a bit of jealousy may be involved in that claim…and/or maybe some money too?
The drama just never seems to end with Alex Rodriguez……
