Alex Rodriguez – born just across the Harlem River in Washington Heights – spoke for the Bronx yesterday.
“It hurts a lot,” Rodriguez told reporters after the Yankees’ loss. “This is a game we feel we should have won.”
Many pointed to Robinson Cano’s error as the reason why they didn’t.
“We win as a team and we lose as a team,” Rodriguez said. “Robbie had a great day offensively and he’s been playing great defense. It’s one of those plays that you wish you could take back.”
But baseball takes nothing back. Not the low throws or the bad pitches or the hard-hit balls that turn into double plays. And it certainly never takes back the hurt.
