Alex Rodriguez won the baseball game yesterday. Coincidentally, the Yankees also won yesterday's game against the Rays. These two things are related. There's no doubt that A-Rod is the best hitter on the team right now. There's also no doubt that he's currently batting sixth in the order. Unless Carlos Beltran does indeed have a 3-hole clause we do not know about, it's hard to understand why Girardi has not made any changes. Perhaps we'll see one tonight. Perhaps.
