No A-Rod in the lineup tonight for the Yankees. Benched in favor of Chavez. Say what you want about the Yankees, but Joe Girardi is a very good manager. I’m impressed with his baseball knowledge and ability to make gutsy decisionsVince Maughan

Crazy how AROD gets all the blame, when cano, granderson and Swisher are doing just as badJude Legiste
Dear rest of the Yankees (minus Jeter), feel free at any time to hit a baseball. It’s not just A-Rod. I guess you can’t bench the whole starting lineup….Christian Uhl
