"It was awesome, it was just an amazing experience," Rodriguez said Saturday morning before the Yankees hosted the Detroit Tigers in a matinee game. "The fans were incredible. Such great energy and such a great response. It was pretty overwhelming. I was having a hard time keeping my emotions in check." Rodriguez thought the fans' reaction was "so much better than I ever even dreamed of."
He added: "I just felt the love walking around the city. What people were screaming, (it was) pretty incredible. This city is, it's the greatest city in the world."


haha, I was thinking the same exact thing when I saw the headline on ESPN that he was "overwhelmed" by the reception that he got.

Jonah Keri ‏@jonahkeri 21m
Darvish robbed on strike 3 call, next pitch a walk. Pierzynski tossed from the game, because he believes umps should call pitches correctly.

At some point, baseball will do something about their umpires, right?

Wow...he'd be on his way to a perfect game if it wasn't for that walk call.

AJ Pierzynski is no angel. I am not sure what he said, but based his past I am sure it was colorful.

Pierzynski's a jerk so who knows what he said but it sure looks like it is the ump who is the one looking for a fight. Kulpa could have ignore AJ as he started walking to the mound but instead he followed him, confronted him and made sure everyone knew they were in the stands to see him and not the players.

I think the ump is over stepping, but just adding that the player in question has had his run ins.

Id like to see the umpire stoned but with baseballs. Not to death, just like 20 or 30 throws.

Some umps just refuse to ignore anything. Keep your mask on, turn away, move along with the game.

I had to laugh when L.J. Hoes got caught stealing.

If that were a strike, it would be a lot funnier. When a pitcher that age has a curveball that good, the only way they are doing it is by throwing it with bad mechanics. Elbow will be done before hes 20.

Ichiro isn't approaching 4000 hits. If any player that has finished over .300 before the age of 22 was willing to throw away their career, tey could go to Japan and put up 4000 hits.

Are you discounting the fact that Ichiro even while in the US was one of the most prolific hitters this generation?

i think its unfair to completely discount what he did in japan but i understand your point. i think the most impressive thing is that he didnt come to the MLB until he was 27 and still has like 2800 hits. if he started in the mlb at 22 he would be around 3800 hits which is pretty remarkable

I was just looking at the all time hits leaders, looking specifically at the actice players. I guess I didn't realize how impressive a resume Adrian Beltre has/is putting together. He looks like a sure fire hall of famer.

Beltre has had a very under the radar career, but you're right, it's been solid.

Absolutely. There are plenty of .260 hitters more valuable than him because they get on base way more and occasionally hit the ball more than 150 feet. At what he does best, which I consider getting to first base, he's top 20-25 active.
