How did Alex Rodriguez feel when Joe Girardi informed him he was being pinch-hit for in the ninth?
"Joe and I had a discussion. We preached all year, ‘Whatever it takes to win.’ I don’t know how I would have reacted to that 10 years ago, but I’ve matured a lot over the last 10 years. ... We preach about team, team, team. That’s all we care about. Let’s collect enough victories to win a world championship around here. When he told me, I said, ‘Joe, you've got to do exactly what you’ve got to do.’ Then I got up to the top step and started cheering. I just couldn’t be happier for him.”
