Alex Rodriguez Poker
August 4, 2011 by Post Team
Alex Rodriguez Poker, Although MLB is investigating the involvement of Alex Rodriguez in illegal poker games, the Yankees ‘cleanup hitter baseball begins today activities related to the Yankees’ minor league facilities.
Rodriguez arrived in Tampa last night and work in the complex. It will be the first baseball coach since undergoing Rodriguez arthroscopic surgery on his right knee July 11.
“I think it would start with ‘T’ and throw,” manager Joe Girardi said of Rodriguez, who has not played in a game since July 7. “When a man has not come at a time that does not begin with regular BP.”
Until the Yankees do move and hit Rodriguez, there is no date set, when he began playing in minor league rehabilitation.
“I think we have to see how he does [today] and see how far it is,” Girardi said. “I’m not sure what you will be able to do. I do not really have a schedule that will take time. Everything has gone well so far, so I hope it goes well [today].”
The Yankees, who scored a 18-7 victory over the White Sox last night, are 16-7 without Rodriguez, who faces a possible suspension by Major League Baseball if found involved in illegal poker games after you MLB said to avoid the scene in 2006.
“I have no comment on that,” Girardi said when asked about the loss of Rodriguez to a suspension. “That [MLB] handles these things.”
While the Yankees have no intention of negotiating any of them, the club put CC Sabathia, Russell Martin, Mark Teixeira, Mariano Rivera and David Robertson on procedural waivers trade yesterday.
This means that if a team puts in a claim that the Yankees can pull them back. Of course, Rivera is a player of five and 10 years, which can veto a change. Teixeira has a full no-trade Sabathia hard and has no trade protection.
Although the names are sxy, means nothing and the exercise has often been described as ridiculous.
Most of the players, regardless of their status, go through the waiver process.
After July 31, a player must clear waivers to be treated.
Given the success Sabathia has experienced this year, maybe pitchers should gain weight during the season.
Sabathia was much talk of getting down to 290 when he came to spring training after an offseason diet and training twice a day.
Yesterday, Sabathia, who was named the League pitcher of the month of July, said he has won some 30 kilos lost during the winter after undergoing right knee surgery.
“I gained 10 back, but I feel good, feel strong,” said Sabathia, who is 16-5 and in the thick of the CY Young race. “This [winter] I’ll take 290. It is easier to work in the offseason than it is during the season. During the season I have to make sure I stay strong and feels good.”
Teixeira time credit adjustment by hitting coach Kevin Long is the reason for a winning streak that had the switch-hitter batting .256 going into action last night when he was 1-for-5 and drove in three runs. He is batting .255.
“He said it was too late to get my foot in the ground,” said Teixeira, who is hitting .365 (19-for-52) from July 22 with six homers and 18 RBIs in 13 games.
When the switch-hitting first base homered from the right and left of the plate at 6-0 on Tuesday night in the victory, became the all-time leader in that department with 12. He moved past Eddie Murray his childhood idol and Davis Chile.
Before continuing the current streak, was hitting .240 Teixeira, but Girardi said he was not too worried.
“I was still productive,” Girardi said. “Obviously not a .240 hitter. I would change.”
That production continued when Teixeira became hot. Entering last night’s game was second among major league hitters with 31 homers and second among hitters with 82 RBIs AL.
