08:25 AM ET 07.04 | On July 4th, the season's midpoint, Alex Rodriguez remained a player without much in the way of fireworks this season. Rodriguez, who went 0-for-4 [Tuesday], saw his average drop to .262. James Shields, who came into this game a mess, easily handled A-Rod in his first three at-bats. ... Rodriguez's frustration grows by the day. "He just didn't get real good swings [Tuesday]," hitting coach Kevin Long said. "I thought his pitch selection could have been better." You have to wonder how long Girardi can stick with Rodriguez batting third. Rodriguez is not the power threat he once was, as one scout noted. "He sure doesn't look like a No. 3 hitter anymore," the scout said. "They have to move Cano to three."

Nothing that a protein shake won't cure.

Take away Torrie Wilson and see how A-Rod responds on the field.

Arod put a lot of pressure on himself in spring training that he was going to have a break out year.

I'd suggest NASCAR, but their last new thread was started on Fathers day.
