Melvin Mora, Orioles third baseman What is your reaction to Barry Bonds tying Hank Aaron's home run record? I'm happy for him. I'm happy for his family. It is amazing how one guy can change baseball. Guys like he and [Alex Rodriguez], they breathe life into baseball. Those kinds of guys, you're not going see again, so you have to enjoy them every day.

Orioles fans apparently aren't the only ones who are upset with an economic system that allows the Yankees to spend $423 million for three of the top free agents while major league teams continue to ask local taxpayers to help build them lavish new stadiums.

Grin and bear it Bill Shaikin Los Angeles Times Give him a pay cut! They did, actually. His contract calls for his salary to drop from $29 million this year to $28 million next year. The issue is not that Rodriguez cannot play. He batted .272 with 18 home runs and a .783 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage). That's not bad for a third baseman. The issue is that A-Rod is becoming a complementary player, a good guy to bat sixth in the lineup. The Yankees' lineup is getting weaker as it gets older — Derek Jeter has aged gracefully, but Rodriguez and Mark Teixieira have not — and that leaves two big holes.
