Before It Gets Out Of Hand
Alex Rodriguez paid Jose Reyes a compliment today by stating that he wished that The Outlaw Known as Jose Rells played for the Yankees. It was just an innocent comment referring to Reyes' lead off and base stealing abilities. It is not a knock against Jeter, who we know A-Rod is obsessed with, and therefore could not possibly want on another team. If anything it's a knock against Damon, but it wasn't that either. It was just a compliment. I'm sure the NYPost headline will be something along the lines of, "Alex Tries to Have Jeter Traded Because He Hates Democracy and Loves Steroids." True enough, but that wasn't what this comment was about.
