Dearther Movement gains steam!
Alex Rodriguez will bat third for the Bronx Bombers again on Wednesday night. While there had been a rising commotion from the rabble-rousers to drop the struggling slugger to somewhere lower in the lineup, A-Rod will be playing DH in the three-hole with New York hosting Baltimore in Game 3 of the ALDS. Girardi’s decision did not sit well with Donald Trump, who let the world hear his displeasure in a tweet.

A-Rod must be dropped in the Yankees line-up tonight if they want to win. He simply can’t perform without drugs.
Rodriguez is batting just .111 through the first two games of the team’s first-round playoff series, going 1-for-9 with five strikeouts. A return home to Yankee Stadium might help what ails the former MVP, but if not ... well, then he might need to start worrying about hearing Trump’s infamous catch phrase.
