A-Rod and Dallas Braden team up

Alex Rodriguez and Dallas Braden have left their feud on the field.
Braden sent a peace offering to the Yankees clubhouse at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum before Tuesday’s game, having a box delivered to Rodriguez that included a poster commemorating Braden’s perfect game – with a personalized inscription – and a T-shirt referencing the duo’s April argument.
“It’s all good. That stuff was really nice,” Rodriguez said. “We opened and closed that window.”
The Athletics have been selling “Get Off My Mound” T-shirts in reference to the incident earlier this season, when Braden accused Rodriguez of breaking one of baseball’s unwritten rules by stepping on the mound as he returned to first base after a Robinson Cano foul ball.
While Braden said he was uncomfortable with the T-shirts, one was worn in the Yankees clubhouse on Monday by Cano, to great laughter, and manager Joe Girardi also has one. Now that Rodriguez got his own, he returned the favor by signing 10 of the T-shirts, with the idea that Braden could also sign them and have them auctioned for charity.

I hope the Yankees don’t end up trading Montero or Romine in a deal for Lee. Not that he isn’t a great pitcher, and I do hope they get him in free agency but right now the rotation isn’t an area of need. The Yankees need to acquire a hitter for the bench and to play some at DH, and preferably some insurance for the bullpen as well.
