Berroa Has a Guardian Angel: Alex Rodriguez Goes Down

JerseySenior Analyst IMarch 5, 2009

The good news for Alex Rodriguez is that it will be just a little longer until he hears the boos rain down from fans across the country.

Somewhere in Tampa, Angel Berroa is thanking his deity of choice. A-Rod's hip injury may have just punched Berroa's ticket onto the Yankees' active roster.

Although A-Rod's brother (Bro-Rod?) has claimed Alex will be out for 10 weeks, most analysts are skeptical, and figure he'll be out longer than that. What was thought to be a mere cyst could turn out to be far worse than previously imagined.

This could be disastrous.
