My command, I don’t worry about. That’s one thing I never worry about. It didn’t take no vacation.
Spring training is here!
So Alex Rodriguez, who was dropped two spots in the batting order yesterday and has been pinch hit for in the ninth inning in each of the last two games, is not in the starting lineup for this evening’s do-or-die Game 5. Robinson Cano is batting third, Mark Teixeira is hitting cleanup, and Raul Ibanez will DH and hit fifth. (Eric Chavez gets the start at third; he’ll bat ninth.).
