Alex Rodriguez, Reggie Jackson

You’ll be thrilled to know that Reggie Jackson has rejoined the Yankees for tonight’s series opener against the Athletics. Jackson, who is a “special advisor” with the Yankees, recently took a leave of absence from the team after he said Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Bert Blyleven, Jim Rice, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame and questioned the legitimacy of Alex Rodriguez‘s numbers.

According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, Jackson refused to address the recent controversy.

Pretty nice gig if you can get it. Conveniently, Jackson is hanging out with the Yankees this weekend instead of attending the Hall of Fame inductions in Cooperstown on Sunday. Probably not going to be a very popular guy among that group.

    “Probably not going to be a very popular guy among that group”

    Also, not a popular guy at the Coliseum, the place where he spent most of his career. The place where his number is (rightfully) retired. The place where be became a star.

    Still hope that guy from BASEketball never returns his home run ball.

    That’s great to know, I don’t know how the Yankees would have survived without his dead weight hanging around.
