Warning Sign For A-Rod?

The other Yankees laughed the first time Chuck Knoblauch threw a ball away. It was in Knoblauch's first spring training with the team in 1998, and Knoblauch was a star, a borderline Hall of Fame candidate. So when he flipped a throw high over the head of Tino Martinez and into the home dugout at Legends Field in Tampa, I can remember seeing some Yankees chuckling. It was an exhibition game, it was one wild throw from a second baseman who had just won a Gold Glove, it was no big deal.
