A-Rod scratched with thumb injury

Alex RodriguezBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Alex Rodriguez's return from the disabled list lasted all of one game, as the Yankees third baseman was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a jammed left thumb.

Rodriguez hurt his thumb on Sunday when he tried to backhand a ball hit by Joe Mauer. X-rays taken before Tuesday's game revealed no fracture and he was diagnosed with a sprained thumb. He is listed as day-to-day.

"I just kind of stepped on it, it swelled up a little bit," Rodriguez told reporters (via the Star-Ledger). "Hopefully, it's just a day."

Rodriguez was 0-for-5 in his first game after missing five weeks with a tear of the meniscus in his right knee. He was replaced by Eric Chavez in the Yankees' lineup against Oakland's Brandon McCarthy.

Rodriguez took early batting practice before Tuesday's game at Yankee Stadium, but said he wasn't able to go.

In other A-Rod news, Rodriguez also told reporters that he would meet with Major League Baseball on Friday about his alleged participation in illegal poker games.

"I'll be talking to you guys on Friday afternoon," Rodriguez told reporters (via ESPNNewYork.com). "I can't wait."

It's unlikely Rodriguez will be disciplined in the matter.

ARod is holding an 8-2.  MLB has pocket K-K

Here comes the flop --

The board now reads K-J-5

Turn =  2 ... arod excited about his pair of 2's. 

River - Another King!  FOUR Kings for MLB to Arod's 2's .... Arod going all in! 


Translation -- pick out a headstone for this clown ... he's DONE!

WITH A NAME LIKE DR JELLYFINGER

I AM GUESSING YOU HAVE DONE YOUR FAIR SHARE
OF POKING HIM
 This is not my battle, but I have to chime in here. With a name like brian8ball, and all the yelling you are doing on here, I am sure you have done more than you fair share of 8 balls. Lay off the Coke man. Smoke some herb instead. It will mellow you out kid.

Jeter is the man! If you are a baseball fan there is nothing not to like about Jeter. He is what a MLB player should be. Plays hard, is a leader and good role model. Yankees don't win any of those Championships without him. Arod on the other hand is overpriced, a destraction and hurt all the time. They are good with him but without him they are still as good or maybe even better. As for the Phillies we shall see you in the World Series! They won a Series in 2008 and look pretty soild for a chance in 2011.

This MORON, CHEATER, does not belong in the Hall. MLB is too chicken-sh-t to suspend him. MLB has no integrity at all. They have lost me as a fan forever.
LOL.  Wow, that's such a shame that MLB lost you as a fan, I'm sure Bud Selig is very upset.
