Over at LoHud, Peter Abraham has a quote from A-Rod in his piece on the celebration:
“This feels like home. It’s hard to believe that I played for another two organizations. So much has happened to me here, adversity, some success, that I feel like anything but New York feels weird for me now.”
Do we dare hope this is just another sign that A-Rod wants to and will do what it takes to stay in New York? We’ll be hearing a lot about this over the next five weeks.
