Quick hits: A-Rod is a centaur and other items of note

Oct 31, 2009, 4:03 PM EDT

– Poor Alex Rodriguez. The usual (and unusual) suspects are already piling on after his punchless start
to the World Series. From the unusual department, on Friday we learned
he supposedly has two paintings depicting himself as a centaur above his bed.

– Orioles international scouting
director John Stockstill met with Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman in New York on Friday,
joining a host of teams who have acknowledged interest in the 21-year-old fireballer. Peter Schmuck of the Baltimore Sun, who saw the Orioles balk on Dominican shortstop Miguel Angel Sano, has a hard time believing that the Orioles will “pony up.

– On the heels of Matthew Pouliot’s analysis of Andy Pettitte’s Hall of Fame chances on Friday, Tommy Bennett of Beyond the Boxscore concludes that the veteran left-hander is “slightly above average.”

– Bill Baer of Crashburn Alley previews Saturday’s pitching matchup
between Pettitte and Cole Hamels, reminding us that “Hamels has been
much better than his statistics have shown and Pettitte has been
slightly better.”

– And finally, don’t forget to play “What Yankee Megastar Are You?”

    Alex Rodriguez as a centaur in paintings??
    So who now says that A-Rod isn’t some kind of major league phagg! Only thing I can’t figure out is who is the centaur behind him, giving him the corn-hole routine? Jeter??

    Hey Nelson, the only thing you should be trying to figure out is why this whole ridiculous piece of garbage come by somebody too afaraid to even use his name.

    ^^ You tell him, Donbp. ^^ It’s good to know that you got A-Rod’s back (as well as eating his load from time to time). Please keep your boy happy and satisfied… by being on your knees for him and swallowing when he starts to grunt and moan. Go Phillies!!

    It’s false. No such paintings. Sorry Nelson, seems you may be the “phagg”.
    Frank, you seem quite familiar with being one’s knees when a man is moaning. Hmmm.
    And yes I know for sure they are not there. An no I won’t be looking at this thread again so say what you will
