    Looked good in the field as well. Couple of nice plays.

    • Alex Rodriguez has hit safely in all eight Opening Day games he has played with the Yankees, the longest streak for the franchise since Lou Gehrig hit safely in 12 straight Opening Day games from 1926 to 1937.

    As long as we're comparing ARod to the Iron Horse, there's another part of the horse's anatomy that comes to mind.

    Memo to Alex Rodriguez: Learn from Eli Manning. Don't be the Brett Favre of baseball.
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.

    The shift that the Rays are applying are just killing Alex, why in my mind isn't he told to try and slap it the other way. We're helping Madden to look like a Genius by not changing our swings. Hitting the ball right into the shift, lets play chess with this guy.

    Being stubborn is only adding to our problems. I would bet that if we put the shift on them that they would be told to hit the ball into the whole, if you show them that the shift will hurt us every team we play will use it.

    It's up to you Alex, they're playing deep and daring you to try something different,try helping the team by beating the shift. If we all sacrificed and started slapping singles the other way the shift would stop...

    Right now he's my least concern in the lineup. He just needs to keep staying healthy.

    He's having the best AB's on the team.

    Which as of now isn't saying much but he is.

    This is one of the more odd posts I have read here lately.

    I can see how one might compare Andy to Brett. But surely you don't think Alex should retire. And what does Eli have to do with the comparison?

    I may be wrong but I think he means that Favre with all his power was less successful then Eli who proved to be very clutch in big games.. Still not a good comparison..

    Agreed. He hit the ball pretty hard all series.

    How many times has he walked so far? Impressively patient.

    He has walked a lot, an I'd like for him to look walk first then swing from his heels if he gets a hanger. I wish that he could just clear his mind, I know that he's getting frustrated with the ball not going out in Tampa, and this dreaded shift. Listen Al unless it's a hanger screaming hit me hard please, then work the count.

    When you swing hard and mighty even if you K that's alright, it's better then hitting into a DP. Come on Alex see the ball and just mash it, we fans will stand behind you. No matter what you do at the plate as long as you play your very best. Get tough, and show us the power! Who cares with the haters say, your the outstanding one/ so stand out..

    Oh I came back in to say that your not alone being without that first RBI, hey half the team is in that boat with you, Al at this point forget about the numbers and just have fun winning.. Those HR's will come, so have a good time playing and loosen up, if you just maintain your eye at the plate and slow things down you'll heat up, and that will make things fun it's only baseball...

    Our clean-up hitter should have an RBI by now.

    Not worried about the RBI total. He's having good at bats and being patient. The numbers will come. Only Jeter has been getting on ahead of him at a consistent rate.

    Not watching the game, but pleased by the box score. The HR is nice to see, obviously, but it's also great that he's swiping bases.
