ARod leaving game...

Seems like he pulled a muscle by running to 1st base on a double play ball.

C'mon. Based on your avatar, you really can't be too displeased about it.

Not that I wish injury on Yankees players, but I'm not going to get all torn up about it.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I don't wish any Yankee players to get hurt or any player,but if it could be 1 player in baseball to get hurt it would be A-Rod.I'm a Huge Sox fan and I just hate the guy.
And Yes,I do like seeing players like A-Rod getting hurt !!! It's only a hamstring and nothing major for that sissy,so I can smile. :-) If it were a major injury,No I wouldn't be happy.Then it wouldn't be fair when the Sox win the Championship again. ;-D

No offense but that's dumb. A-Rod is a godsend to the game in the fact that he's clean in a period of steroid abuse. I'm not a Yankee fan or A-Rod fan (see the avatar) but I am a baseball fan. I appreciate it's history and I really truly hope he breaks the all time home run record. The steroid scandal was a black eye and dark time for baseball....having him break the record would go far in helping us forget about it.

You're entitled to your opinion but if you care at all about baseball...you'll be happy when he breaks the record...as much as you don't want to root for him while he's working towards it.

As far as the injury goes....he's a quick healer and usually isn't hurt....I could see him coming back on Tuesday after tomorrow's off day.

Jose Canseco has something to say about A-Rod being clean...he's been right so far, so I don't really know what to think. But until proven otherwise, A-Rod and Pujols are the top two clean HR guys.
And as for him getting injured, generally I differentiate my teams enough so that if any player goes down, it can hurt me. But, alas, I didn't have any first picks this year, so its 'meh' for me. (if Wright went down, who I have in 3/4 leagues, I would be concerned).

So, should I start him this week? I really don't have many options at 3B. They have Monday off and he was due to miss a day or two for the birth of his child.

A-Rod does carry the steroid stigma, if for no other reason that Canseco has implicated him. Even if he is clean, though, he's still a jerk.
