07:13 AM ET 07.25 | It wouldn't be the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez if there wasn't some drama. As much as the Yankees need [Rodriguez's] bat back in the lineup, it seems the players in the Bombers' clubhouse may have finally reached a boiling point when it comes to their controversial teammate. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one Yankee said the nonstop A-Rod drama -- which on Wednesday took a bizarre turn, as it was revealed that the third baseman got a second opinion on his injured left quad without the team's knowledge -- is becoming a distraction to a ballclub that already has enough to worry about. "Guys are just tired of it," the player said. "The media circus that's revolving around Alex is insane -- and we haven't even seen him. It just keeps going."

And it is going to get a lot uglier. I think A-Rod is going to lawyer up and dig in for the long haul. There is a lot of money at stake here.

As a long-time yankee fan, I can't wait for this guy to just go away. When they talk to the media it's all about "the team this" and "the team that" - and then they go and do something like this and it becomes a selfish war of "give me mine"...

Yankees will now punish him from getting a 2nd opinion from an outside source... The Dr has been fined/punished for steroids this year, too.

Too bad for the Yankees. They knew this P O S was as dirty as it gets and they gave him the mega-$$$ extension hoping to cash in on his pending HR record breaking. I've said it before and I'll say i again, there is no way in hell the Yankees should be relieved of his salary or it's luxury tax implications.

It's as though the Yankees made a deal with the devil himself.

Maybe. I don't think Lex Luthor, I mean Kevin Youkalis, has many fans but at least he isn't making everyone answer the same questions, every day. Kevin Brown was pretty bad too. Also, Pavano, Irabu, Tartabull, Ken Phelps...

Do you feel the same way about the Red Sox and Ortiz, or is it different because he hasn't been caught again?

Your speculation about Ortiz is quite a bit different than Centaur-man's KNOWN escapades.Nice try though.

My speculation? He's admitted using PEDs.

Funny how you can look the other way for your team, fanboy.

Until that point there was no more KNOWN about A-Rod using steroids than there was about Ortiz using steroids when he signed his contract.

You don't understand, CardsFan. You see, David Ortiz is a Red Sox, and Rex is a Red Sox fan, so it's way different.

Wow ... that's uncanny, right after Rex's comment.

Or in other words, you can't make a deal with the devil and then come crying when you realize that the pitchfork Beelzebub is sticking in your rump is too hot.
