    I actually give Jack a tremendous amount of credit for even asking the question. It would have been easy for him to pass on it, but he raised it anyway. Because of Mays' relationship with Bonds, he has been decidedly quiet on the issue of steroids and, I am sure, probably a little bit short tempered when it comes to the subject. Given what Jack said at the onset of his column, that Mays can be gruff at times naturally, I am sure it was a bit uncomfortable wading into that subject to begin with. Give him credit for asking the question that needs to be asked. A-Rod admitted to using steroids. If we, as Yankee fans, rightfully poured disdain over guys like McGwire and Bonds, we can't hide our head in the sands when it comes to A-Rod simply because he is wearing the pinstripes.

    Willie Mays is gruff and short with fans all the time... Curry was lucky to get some quotes from him....A-Rod is pressing but still getting base hits.

    Great story by Curry. The reporters who covered George all have great stories. George will be missed.

    Too cool. Sitting in the stands, even in a AAA venue, one does not really see how fast the game can be. One of the drawbacks from television, even with replay and "Yesmo".

    Great blog! Thanks for giving us that perspective. Hopefully you will see A-Rod's 600 HR. If you do, certainly write about that as well!

    Girardi is as big, if not a bigger problem than Burnett. Burnett is a consistently inconsistent pitcher, but this is unacceptable from a guy being paid $16 million a year, I don't know whether Girardi is stupid, or simply delusional. EVERY great pitcher, which Burnett is NOT, does not go through this! Besides Burnett is NOT a great pitcher, he is more in the Oliver Perez category, a guy with great stuff who can't pitch even remotely consistently. I wish Joe would have mentioned at least ONE other "great" pitcher who gone 3-7 over the previous 2 months, and got pounded unmercifully in 5 consecutive games. Then after the game Burnett went into his best Joba impression refusing to admit that he looks like anything but a major league pitcher, especially a very expensive major league pitcher! Everything is good. It was broken bat hits that did him in! Perhaps we're also seeing why the Marlins fired Girardi. He's stubborn and arrogant, and will NEVER admit to a mistake, like letting Perez, oops, Burnett hit last night with the team down 1, runners 1st/3rd, 1 out. Then stubborn Joe is forced to pull him after he puts the first 2 guys on base, who of course score, and the game is over! Girardi seems to be more interested in not hurting Burnett's feeling than in doing what is right for the team. Even the Mets finally discovered the futility of continuing to send Perez out to demoralize his team every 5 days. How many more games is Girardi going to cost the team by sending this head case out there every 5 days? It may cost Girardi his job!

    Thank goodness for Yesnetwork and sensible reporting and information. I cannot listen to WFAN anymore. As for Posada, he has accomplished a great deal and can be very proud of what he has done. Whether he catches all the time or not, he has those amazing number of rings!
