After what happened in game 3, this was bound to take place.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi has pulled Alex Rodriguez from tonight’s lineup for game 5 versus the Orioles in the ALDS. A-Rod can’t get out of his own way these days and constantly gets booed by the home crowd.
It’s all mental with A-Rod because he’s still plenty talented. But if New York survives tonight, Girardi may as well sit A-Rod the rest of the postseason because he’ll officially be shot mentally.
BREAKING: A-Rod not in @yankees lineup for today’s Game 5.
