Sorry folks, just because ARod said this doesn't make it news-worthy.
A-Rod's slip of tongue: Yanks done
Even Alex Rodriguez seems to have realized that the Yankees are not playoff-bound. After a 5-2 loss to the Mariners Sunday knocked them into fourth place in the American League East, behind the Rays, Red Sox and now the Blue Jays, Rodriguez was asked about being passed by Toronto. "Toronto's playing really well," he said. "I'll tell you what, a lot of people should be happy they're not in the playoff race, because they'd be the scariest team, with the 1-2 punch they've got over there with Halladay and Burnett." But, Alex, if the Blue Jays are ahead of your team, and they're not in the playoff mix, what does that mean about your chances to make the playoffs?
