Don’t let Bird’s bad night jump-start terrible A-Rod experiment | New York Post

ARod, team player.

“I am going to ask [Rodriguez] to take some groundballs, to see if he would be comfortable,” Girardi said before the game. “We have a lefty on Wednesday, and I am not sure what I will do.”

Both A-Rod and Brian Cashman are not sure, too. They’re not sure this is a good idea.

“Risk-reward, spring training is one thing,” said A-Rod, who went 1-for-4 with a walk in his first start since Wednesday. “Even earlier in the season, April, May you can do a trial-by-error kind of thing. It’s kind of a different story now.”

“My gut [feeling] in the end is I don’t think that’s something we’ll pursue,” Cashman said.
