Dunedin, Fla. — The Toronto Blue Jays beat the NY Yankees 1-0 yesterday at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, but the story just starts there.

Media embattled Yankee Alex Rodriguez batted three times and boos and a few hoorays were heard from the 5,511 in attendance.  The first at bat brought the Rodriguez opponents to delirium as he struck out on three Daniel Norris pitches.  The second at bat was for the Rodriguez proponents are the veteran lined the rawhide hard off the right field wall. and yes at his age it was a single.  The third at bat was can of corn fly ball.
