Mighty Casey

It was just a week or so, Yanks/Mets on ESPN?, that Alex Rodriguez got up to bat in the ninth inning with bases loaded. He is never a sure thing, not like Jeter, or Lou Pinella or Tino Martinez or even Paul O'Neill. I turned to John and said, "There will be no joy in Mudville." "No?" he queried. And indeed he struck out with the bases loaded, didn't break the game wide open...

And yet, just yesterday, got up and got it done. Nice 4-run home-run. And just a couple of days after he nearly killed a guy with a line drive. It's not easy being thee.
