To the surprise of precisely no one, the Yankees own fallen-then-risen son A-Rod was named April Player of the Month
for his divine efforts at the plate. Here are his pertinent stats through April 30:
|Batting Average||.355||Derrek Lee - .412|
|OBP||.415||Jim Thome - .553|
The good news for the Yankees
is that A-Rod is on fire and hopefully will continue to be hot (without him, the Yanks record would be at best 8-16). The good news for A-Rod is that Sharp gave him not just a trophy for his work but also an AQUOS full HD LCD-TV,
a luxury he surely could not have afforded without government aid. Hopefully A-Rod will invite the rest of the gang over to see his shiny new TV and, jealous, they will all strive to be Players of the Month so that they too can watch CSI in Hi-Def!
