Oh boy, the media in New York will have a lot to say about A-Rod’s comments for Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf:
A-Rod loves Chicago and White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf, as well: “To me, he’s the greatest guy. He loves baseball and the people in it. It seems all he cares about is that the White Sox win. Look at the move he made to let his general manager go for Jake Peavy. Chicago fans should love the guy. He’s all about winning.”
The greatest. As in the best there is. Better than the Yankees owners.
A-Rod commented on Gordon Beckham too:
In closing, A-Rod talked to me about White Sox third base phenom Gordon Beckham: “He looks like a wonderful player. Wow, what a natural stroke, nice and compact, just like a young Paul Molitor. I think he’s going to be outstanding.”
