A Steve-esque post...

Now that midterms have come and gone, and since I have a couple of weeks to ease back into blog writing, I'll go into a post that will reek of Steve's type of posts =P...

Before I do, let me plug in the articles I have written for my school's newspaper... yes, I'm serious... =P

1. So my third Fordham article (about baseball, yay!) was in print last week... while I was looking through the website, I saw the listings of the most popular articles throughout the newspaper and...



















Well, my article (the 2nd most popular sports article in the newspaper) is more popular than a feature article dealing with personal cooking...

We are... FORDHAM... yea...

Anyway!

Since NoMaas.org already talked about a ridiculous article about A-Rod, why should I do the same thing? Let's go with the headline story in my local hometown paper, The Bergen Record...

From Bob Klapisch:

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Can you imagine Alex Rodriguez in a Mets uniform in 2008? It's not just impossible, you say, it's heresy. Or is it? The idea of A-Rod crossing enemy lines has strong support from none other than David Wright – who says he'd give up his position to make room for the Yankee third baseman.

"Are you kidding me? As great a hitter as Alex is, I'd definitely do it," Wright said. "Tell him to come over, tell him to do it."

In a quiet, early morning clubhouse at Tradition Field, Wright was smiling, but apparently not kidding about his crosstown rival. That's how convinced he is that A-Rod's arrival would be the final, missing piece in ensuring the Mets' domination for the rest of the decade...

Point-blank, Wright was asked, who's the more dangerous hitter, Manny or A-Rod?

Wright thought long and hard, and finally said, "I'd have to say A-Rod. I mean, that guy has sick power. I saw him hit a home run against us [July 2 at Yankee Stadium] that he was out in front of, off his front foot and he went the opposite way – and he still hit into the black [seats in the bleachers]."

Wright shook his head and said, "What other player hits 30-something home runs, drives in 100, hits .280 and calls that an off year?"

"Case closed," he said.

What is so newsworthy of this that would warrant a front page headline in the Sports section?

David Wright is showing absolute respect to the abilities of A-Rod, and he (like most other players) would like a possible 800 HR hitter and future Hall-of-Famer on their team... so what?

A-Rod was a Met fan growing up, and the whole "coming back to your hometown team" would be awesome for him, but who's to say that A-Rod won't deal with the same stuff he's dealing on the Yankees right now?

Let's not forget how Met fans rode Carlos Beltran up to last year, and putting the highest-paid baseball player on another New York team? Eh...

It's a nice sentiment and I'm sure A-Rod's greatly flattered... but I highly doubt that comments from a Met will highly change his mind on whether he wants to stay after next year...

In other news, Carl Pavano actually pitched in a game... and he did pretty decent too! 33 pitches and one run in 2 innings... good start, good start...

More to come in the next few weeks...

Happy reading! =)
