    A declining A-Rod still makes the team a lot better.

    Chavez has hit better and is a superior fielder. ARod's injury is a blessing is disguise as long as Chavez is healthy

    A-Rod is the best DH on the team. And Chavez' number is inflated as he doesn't need to face LHP.

    The lineup has too many platoon players (Ichiro, Ibanez, Chavez, Jones, etc.).

    ARod is definitely nowhere near what he once was, and his contract is obscene for his current level of production, but it is clear that he still makes a difference in our offense, which has been pretty inept since his injury. It would help if Girardi would stop batting the human strikeout machine leadoff.

    I didn't think humans could strikeout as much as Granderson...... I love the guy. He gives it 100%, 100% of the time. He's got a GREAT personality.
    But I really think he's going to price himself out fo the Yankees' plans.
    With the year he's having, he's not worth the big money he's going to ask for.

    Alex definitely lengthens the lineup to force Girardi to bat guys like Granderson lower in the order.

    Girardi didn't bat Granderson lower when Rodriguez was around, and I'll bet he doesn't do it when Alex comes back. It's kind of like the LRLRLRLRLRLRLR thing, except in this case it's "you want speed at the top of the lineup."

    You wouldn't care to live in it if you can sell it at $38M.

    We'll have a better idea after Sunday:

    Alex Rodriguez is scheduled to undergo more X-rays on his fractured left hand on Sunday, likely giving the Yankees a better idea of when the third baseman can return from the 15-day disabled list, on which he was placed on July 25.

    Rodriguez underwent X-rays on Tuesday that showed progress, allowing him to begin strengthening exercises. If Sunday's X-rays show similar progress, Rodriguez could begin swinging a bat. Thus far, he has been limited to running and throwing a football or baseball to maintain his arm strength.

    Rodriguez’s home run was his first since the day before he broke his hand in Seattle. It was also his 300th as a Yankee. “I had no idea I had 300,” Rodriguez said. “But the only numbers we’re worried about right now are W’s. Whatever you’re going to do for the year is already done. Numbers are done, stats are done, we are worried about one thing and that’s winning games. That makes it a lot of fun. So a lot of good things happened today.”

    Time to put up or shut up, Alex.

    He's back. His presence is huge to the lineup.

    It must be said, he's done much better than I worried he might. He's by no means red hot, but he's hot enough to be making a big difference. Here's hoping he keeps it up.

    In the six games since he's been back:

    7 for 23, with two doubles and two HRs - .304/ .320/ .652/ .972

    I'd take that the rest of the way.

    Re: 2012 Alex Rodriguez Performance Thread

    I'd hope so.

    It is amazing the difference he makes for our club, even when he isnt on a good run of form. As fans its a comfort having him on deck, so I'd imagine that the players feel that even more so.

    Actually, after the first two games at least, he has hit the ball better than his line indicates, with a lot of loud outs and near misses.

    Re: 2012 Alex Rodriguez Performance Thread

    He is such a clutch mother f-er.

    Re: 2012 Alex Rodriguez Performance Thread

    Wonder why he's still not running well. Seems like he's running worse than before the hand fracture

    Hopefully he'll keep bombing- the HR trot isn't very taxing
