Alex Rodriguez and the Art of Not Being Un-Dude

Alex Rodriguez had a bad game at the plate yesterday but he is not panicking. Neither is hitting coach, Kevin Long. Josh Thompson has more. ¬†Over at Hardball Talk, Matthew Pouliot thinks it is time for the Yankees to drop Rodriguez down in the order. I don’t see it happening, at least not yet, but you never know…

I only support dropping him down if that means Melky hits third in an elimination game...

...no I'm still not over that.

Rodriguez has his work cut out tonight vs Verlander but a couple of base hits will go a long way.

is it bad that I'm not overly nervous about tonight...I honestly don't feel like Detroit has some sort of huge edge.

I mean if you can't feel confident with CC going, then what's the point?

alex is a guess hitter anyway, so he should probably sit on fastball and cheat a bit. if they throw him off-speed stuff just let it pass him.

tough to have a messed up knee and thump and have good timing and swings.

4) Yes, but let's hope he doesn't sit there and let good fastballs by him.

3) Got to have faith, man. It's C.C.!

[5] oh no - i'm saying i want him sitting fastball so he can catch up to verlander's heat.

6) Def. He just has the tendency to let good pitches go by sometimes. No matter what they are, let's hope he's taking his hacks.

Man A-Rod looks so lost out there, as does Tex.
