This offseason could not have been any worse for Alex Rodriguez, as the publication of the Joe Torre memoir, steroid allegations emerging from the Selena Roberts book, and a torn labrum in his hip caused him to get crucified by the media and Yankee fans. While A-Rod has been out and recovering from hip surgery, his team has struggled in his absence. A litany of injuries, slow starts by the big-ticket free agent signees, and a mediocre bullpen have put the Yankees under .500 for the season, and they are currently on a losing streak.
With the team struggling, and the combined batting average of Yankee 3rd-basemen just over .200, A-Rod has the opportunity to step in and be a savior. Even if he is not at his best right away, he will almost certainly be an upgrade over the 3 Stooges (Ransom, Berroa, Pena). If Alex can get off to a quick start and help the Yankees start winning again, the fans will once again embrace him and overlook his nightmare offseason. Manny Ramirez’s failed test for PED’s will also help, distracting media attention from A-Rod, allowing him to return to the Yankees in a potentially more forgiving environment.
