A-Rod Already Taking Heat From ‘NY Daily News’ After Going 0-For-2 Vs. Pitching Machine
On Monday, the New York Yankees held an intrasquad game, but rather than using human pitchers, they resorted to the services of a pitching machine that goes by the name of “Iron Mike.”
Mark Teixeira, Didi Gregorius, Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury, Stephen Drew and Garrett Jones were all hitless on the day, going a combined 0-for-10 at the plate, and Chris Young actually struck out against the pitching machine during one at-bat, but the NY Daily News were more interested in something else: Alex Rodriguez‘s 0-for-2 performance at the plate.
A-Rod grounded out to third in his first plate appearance, and popped out to right field in his second. And the NY Daily News had some fun with it.
Here’s a look at Tuesday morning’s backpage:
A-Rod hasn’t even played a real game against real human pitchers yet and already he’s being hounded by the New York media for his lack of productivity.
He better get used to it, because it looks like he could be in for a long season in the Big Apple.
