I haven't followed the Yankees at all this season, but has he really been THAT bad that you bench one of the best players of this generation in an elimination game?

Full disclosure, I hate ARod, but this seems like a pretty drastic move for a player with his ability and career

Horrible decision. Granderson has been even worse. Should have benched granderson and put ibanez in left and ichiro in center.

Kinda agree. It's not like he's totally hitless. However, I hate him so it's all good. Granderson is like Dunn. Out of the park or out at the plate.

Wow, between Grandy, Swisher and Arod I'm not sure who's been worse... Bad move on Joe's part.

Are the Yankees better off with Eric Chavez in the lineup? I guess that will be determined at 5:00 today!

They better have Ibanez actually starting if they want to win.

Ibanez is DH, Chavez starting at 3rd and batting in the #9 spot.

Everybody in this series has been struggling. There have been more K's than hits in this series. Whoever wins this series will come down to 1 or 2 hits tonight.

Interesting strategy ... bet you will see a key PH late in this game.

Sitting against the right-hander Hammel...makes sense on paper, I guess. That's why Granderson is still in there.

Well, let's be honest here...I think you could make the argument that we don't even make it to the World Series without Alex in 2009. That was some lightning in a bottle.

A Rod only has 5 year and over 110 million left on his contract. Now I'll have to hear Yankees fans scream for him to be traded/cut over the next 5 years.

Yankee fans just dont get that you paid all of that money to get those great first years including a 2009 WS title, that AROD pretty much carried them to. Now you are stuck with the payroll eater for the last half of his contract.

typical spoiled Yankee fan... Do you even watch the games? Do you remember 2009 when he won you a title?

What has anyone but Jeter or Cano done in this series batting wise... and Raul of course

Arod looks lost right now. At least we know what to expect with the Grandy - Man like Tuga said.. go big or go home. A-Rod is like a blind mouse looking for a piece of cheese. I'd put Nix at third.

Apparently you haven't noticed jeter is on fire. Batting 400 and teixeira isn't doing to bad either.

Why does everyone hate A-Rod so much? Is it only because of the steroids? Because I personally don't find that good enough of a reason to hate someone as much as everyone else does. Maybe I'm missing something else being away from following baseball for as long as I was.

I think it's just the Roids + painted by the media as a jerk. Same thing with Bonds. I don't see a bunch of Andy Pettitte haters coming out of the woodwork...

Well media influence or not, to me he just strikes me as an #@#@#@#@#@#@#@. Some of the things that he has done in game, like calling the fielder off when he was running the bases or trying to smack the ball out of the fielders glove. Stuff like that speaks volumes.
