Finally ... Alex Rodriguez makes his first appearance at the new Yankee Stadium. Before the game against the Twins, the news media wanted to get his impressions of the place and to see how he felt about being back in uniform in the Bronx, A-Rod had been in Colorado and Florida recovering from hip surgery in March. He hit a homer on the first pitch he saw upon his return on the road in Baltimore on Monday. #13 gets a lot of attention - there's a new, less-than-flattering book about him in the stores and of course, there was that steroids use admission earlier this year. But now it's all about producing on the field and the Yankees need him to succeed in order to make the playoffs this season.
