A-Rod wanted to play third base in his last game. Joe Girardi said no.

New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

The Yankees gave a mostly immobile Derek Jeter 130 starts at shortstop in 2014 when they were competing for a playoff spot. The 2016 Yankees could book “Wanna Get Away” fares on Southwest Airlines and a prepaid hotel room for an October 4th vacation and not have to worry, yet they still won’t let Alex Rodriguez have a little fun before his career ends:

I’m sure everyone will remember where they were when they saw Chase Headley play third base in game 115 of a blah season back in the day. It’ll really be something to cherish.

In other news, Joe Girardi probably gives loved ones Amazon gift cards for Christmas.
