I’m going to start this by saying that this has nothing to do with how you are acting at all. In fact, you’ve been great so far in Spring Training but please, for the love of God, just stop talking to the media because no matter what you say or how you say it, some of them will always turn it into something else.
It could be the most innocent of comments, or the most honest of answers to a simple question they’ve asked and certain members of the media will take it upon themselves to psychoanalyze you, twist your words or just make fun of you no matter what you say or do.
And I have to say Alex, you have definitely improved in the way you answer those questions. There used to be a time when Yankee fans would collectively cringe whenever you spoke to the media. Now, there’s a sense of pride in how far you’ve come. You joke around, you seem more relaxed and you’re definitely not as rehearsed as you’ve been in the past.
We are also extremely thankful that the ‘Foot in Mouth’ crown has been handed to Lebron James of the Miami Heat and we’d really like to keep it that way.
Still, I think it would be best if you would realize who you are talking to. Just be mindful that some of them seem to have weird obsessions with you and never have nice things to say about you, no matter what you do.
Anyway, good luck this season Alex. Hopefully you can stay healthy, quiet some of those doubters and help lead the Bombers to championship number 28.
P.S. I know you offered Jeremy Lin your couch but I could really use a place to crash in Manhattan too. Could you help a sister out? Thanks.
