I was away from the Internet for most of yesterday, and when I returned it turns out that A-Rod still did steroids. Damn. I was kind of hoping that my hiatus would undo all that. What I did find upon returning, though, is that a number of Yankees, including Jorge Posada, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Andy Pettitte — a/k/a The Rings — want to join A-Rod as he faces the media when he reports to camp. It sounds like a plan. If the Yankees want to keep the situation under control, having the most admired players on the team standing up for Alex is the way to go. Will it work? You never know with the New York media. I think it’s a quality game plan, though.
