Alex Rodriguez promises to shut his people up [2] about all non-baseball-related mishegoss. Let’s see how long that lasts. Meanwhile, he pal David Ortiz had this to say [3]:

“I didn’t like it. I don’t think it was the right thing to do,” Ortiz told USA TODAY Sports. “But we don’t all think alike, and the guy who did it, Dempster, is a great guy. It’s not that I didn’t think it was right because Alex and I are friends, because once you cross the white lines, everyone’s on their own.

“But we’ve got Tampa right on our heels, and that pitch woke up a monster in the Yankees’ team at that moment. You saw how the game ended up. CC (Sabathia) was throwing 91 (mph) and started throwing 96. Alex later hit one way out there. You’re talking about a good team that you can’t wake up. But we learn from our mistakes.”

Andy’s on the hill this afternoon. Gray skies in New York so it could be a wet one.
