What to do about A-Rod?
A-Rod apparently has a torn labrum in his hip. If he requires surgery, he may miss up to half the season. If this forces the Yankee's best athlete into the lineup, they lose runs at a rate of 55 per season. Of course, there are other options, plenty of third basemen the Yankees could trade for. I'm sure the Orioles would love to send them Melvin Mora. If Brandon Wood has a great spring Chone Figgins could be available. Maybe even Scott Rolen, if the Blue Jays decide they have no chance this year.
It's too bad A-Rod couldn't have broken the news a few days earlier, then the Yankees might have considered Nomar Garciaparra. That would have been cool to see all three of the great young shortstops of the 90's together.
