Remember how yesterday we were talking about Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, and Willie Randolph? You know, remembering the good times after hearing about their numbers being retired? Well today's topic is a wake up call to one of the realities that is the 2015 season. Yesterday, Yankee player and noted super villain Alex Rodriguez released a handwritten apology to Yankee fans yesterday. The "hotter than hot" takes on the matter from the esteemed sports media conglomerate could probably be made into a powerful form of pepper spray or curry. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Thus far, this is still my favorite response to the matter.

All joking aside, here is a really nice piece about A-Rod that you should read. None of the pomp and circumstance or vitriol of most media hot takes. Just a very well written and very humanizing story about Alex Rodriguez.

I am getting excited. I want more. Give it to me, baseball!
I doubt a bath in the waters of Antarctica would provide a colder shower than this image of Red Sox players.

"Mama is not the law. I am the law!" No really, the GIFs and Judge Dredd quotes are truly why we want Aaron Judge to be the real deal.
Honorable Mod Mention
The HMM goes to Waffles and myself for having the only two COTD posts from yesterday. Good job!

I had to cheat on this one because I couldn't decide between the two. I love both of these remixes very much. For just a simple Game Boy game, it's amazing what great compositions came from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Still one of the saddest endings to a Zelda game. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. We are only two days away from pitchers and catchers reporting. Photos of workouts are on their way. Stay strong until then, PSAers. Unless the Yankees sign Moncada before then, in which case lose control!
