Morning Coffee! Pinstripe Alley Defends Alex Rodriguez

Good morning, New York sports fans. Here is your first look at today's New York sports scene.

  • By now, you likely know that Alex Rodriguez became the seventh player in baseball history to reach 600 home runs when he blasted a ball into Yankee Stadium's Monument Park Wednesday night. Because it's A-Rod, and because of his admission of using performance-enhancing drugs for a period of time, some are unimpressed. Pinstripe Alley's 'Lord Duggan' rides to his Rodriguez' defense this morning, though.

Real writers and real men don't take the moral high ground in order to slam someone they don't like and try to bully other people into thinking the way they think. You don't like Alex, you probably don't like the Yankees, and you're on a martyrdom about steroids, we get it, but it doesn't make waiting for what should be a celebratory moment of achievement to take pot shots at him any less pathetic.

Shoot, when the 'Lord' speaks shouldn't we listen?

  • Oh, almost forgot. The Yankees beat the Blue Jays, 5-1, Wednesday night.

  • What about the Mets, you ask? Well, this morning the Mets are asking 'where did Mike Pelfrey go?' That's because the guy who was their best pitcher the first half of the season got pounded last night -- something that has happened a lot lately -- in an 8-3 loss to Atlanta.

  • Good news for the New York Giants today. Osi Umenyiora, disgruntled during the off-season, seems to have come to terms with the fact that he has to share playing time. Oh, and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has escaped serious injury to his knee. See Big Blue View for all the details.

  • Looks like Shannon Brown will pass on an offer from the New York Knicks to stay with the Los Angeles Lakers. Something about wanting to win another championship. What a novel concept -- stay with a good team instead of intentionally going to a bad one.
