07:18 AM ET 06.21 | Of the talent sitting on the DL for the Yankees, Alex Rodriguez may beat them all back to the lineup. [Rodriguez's] recent progress is said by people around the Yankees to have been dramatic, with one person calling it "fantastic" and another even speculating A-Rod could possibly begin to play rehab games just after the All-Star break. ... Rodriguez, whose badly damaged right hip was repaired in the winter, is now physically ahead of Derek Jeter since A-Rod is able to run closer to full bore -- though general manager Brian Cashman isn't ready to pinpoint dates for either player. ... One Yankees person said A-Rod is "clearly well ahead of Derek," though the ups and downs of rehab will keep Cashman from declaring that A-Rod will [return first].

"Fantastic" progress? Is he sure he wants to come back? I'm a Yankee fan and I don't want this chump back on the team.

Let the PED comments begin.

I think you need to start to wonder, if Jeter is going to be able to play at all this year.

I don't think I need to start to wonder that. It's really of little consequence to me.

Come on Slink, we all know you're a closet Yankee fan.

That's probably because you look at the standings and think 'hey, they're only three games back without him."

Are you aware that as of this morning, the Yankees have allowed five more runs than they've scored this season?

Or, how about the fact that there are only three AL teams that have scored fewer runs than the Yankees?

Here's another one for you: the Houston Astros, who are on pace to lose 100 games, have a higher team OPS than the Yankees.

You may not want this chump back on the team, but unless you want to watch the team drop like a stone to the basement of the AL East, they need every proficient bat they find, including this chumps.

Have a great day!

What happens when he breaks his hip again?

Granted, I'm not part of Miss Cleo's Psychic Friends Network, but I would guess that would probably be another DL stint.

I am OK with it if at seasons end they clean house as best they can and play the Almontes, and Ibarras and JR Murphys a lot....

No, I'm quite serious, as usual.

The jersey is hanging in the Red Sox dugout. It is a reminder of the Boston Marathon bombings. It says "Boston Strong" around the number 617, the area code for Boston. The jersey travels with the team as well.
