Yankees manager Joe Girardi says he is going to "do something different" in his use of Alex Rodriguez, meaning A-Rod won't play against a lot of righties in the near term. Rodriguez had been the regular DH, but his OPS against rightiesis just .584, while vs. lefties it is .837. A-Rod said, "You havent' heard the last of me." A-Rod has been benched for the second straight game. He will start against a lefty on Tuesday, but after that it is uncertain how much he will play.
