8:15 am
a lot of people obviously that don't like alex a he's very polarizing figure he one best and still is he hasn't said retirement just yet we're looking a one the best hitters of this current generation. and one that deserves to be recognized despite fact he's had personal issues in the past. you seed hasn't said retirement just yet. do you expect that maybe this isn't it for him? >> you never know with alex. i think that's always one thing believes there's still a chance he's going to play. now whether or not he equilibrium actually find a team that is willing to take him at this point in his career obviously lot older he's also struggling offensive and no where to put him defense ifl makes it hard to uj he would be back in another major league uniform. but i think for alex he's not put this behind him just yet and the will leave this door open. you mention defensively nowhere to put him he did ask sk to play third base again tonight but was denied manager joe injury racudipathy.
8:16 am
>> i don't think so. i mean, i think joe still is trying a win. i think that's part of even though yankees for me probably have about 1 percent chance of going to the post season joe is not going to change way he manages. he does not belief alex rodriguez a good third base man and not comfortable putting him out there i know alexis a little disappoint he will not play third base but joe is no the going change everything. not going to change the game plan for whole team just player even if it is alex rodriguez. let's say alex does and up retiring what's next for hum he still stays on the team's payroll, right? lot of different things. we had him on fox last year he bunch post season stuff he was very good. did world serieshe took it very seriously. he brought lot to the broadcast. this guy obviously has done very well financially has lot of option as couple of different companies that is he runs. he we also know how much he loves the game and yankees want

8:18 am
that's always going to bother some people and some people will look at the accomplishments that he had on the field as tainted. they are always going to wonder whether or not he was actually as good as we saw him unfortunately he made that decision. he's going have to live with that cloud the rest of his life. cj one quick question. final question here any prediction of what a-rod does tonight? >> we will see. you know the bat has slowed down. i think everybody would although of to dramatic a big homerun would i don't know if is there. bat speed has really slowed down hopefully for his sake he has chance to do something big. thank you very much for joining us. you can catchall action from alex rodriguez game right here on fox 13. coverage begins from yankee stadium right after the 6 o'clock news. all right. thanks, mike. we will get a check of roadways right now. you mentioned in last report, or i mentioned to you that the crash involving pedestrian
