While Alex Rodriguez has been busy mending relationships as he gets set for spring training, the veteran made sure to call up his replacement at third base, Chase Headley, just to say hello (NJ.com, Feb. 16).
"It was just more of an introduction," Headley said of A-Rod's call. "I think we both care about winning. That's the most important thing and that's what we talked about. That (other) stuff will sort itself out."
Of course, that "other stuff" Headley is referring to is the business of Rodriguez gunning for his old spot on the field. As it stands, A-Rod will start the season at DH, but since he's been out of the game for a year for a PED suspension, he will have to earn his playing time at third base.
