Letter to the Editor: "A tragic figure in the eyes of Yankee fans"

The New York Post

Dear Editor

The Yankees' treatment of Alex Rodriguez during the ALCS is an embarrassment and disgrace to not only A-Rod but the best fans in the sport. A player of his talent should not be publicly humiliated and emasculated.

We all know A-Rod's history and some of the questionable decisions he has made. However, making him the scapegoat at the expense of the betterment of the team is unacceptable. There is no way possible that the Yankees are better with him sitting on the bench. Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi need to move on. I have lost all respect for both of them, and they have done the impossible: made A-Rod a tragic figure in the eyes of Yankees fans.

I totally agree: Cashman and Girardi need to go--and NOW.

And they won't.

We now continue with our regularly scheduled program.

I never thought I'd say this but I miss George.

And I'd let Girardi go just for the simple way he uses our pitchers.....oh I could go on but you all know the issues.

I feel a bad decade upon us.
