Check it out. Just like the New York Post — May-Rod? Please? — I too can write incredibly cheesy headlines about Alex Rodriguez. Anyway, the news: Alex Rodriguez underwent successful surgery this morning, and this afternoon, he began his rehab with a ride on the stationary bike. I’d probably take the under on nine weeks right now.
In other Yankee news, the team lost at home to the Blue Jays this afternoon, 6-2. While Andy Pettitte looked sharp in his spring debut, Ian Kennedy allowed five runs on five hits and a walk in 2.2 innings to earn the loss. Brett “Babe Ruth” Gardner hit his third home run of the Grapefruit League. Mariano Rivera had a 30-pitch session this morning, and all was right in the bullpen.
