The Times had this picture... its SportsMonday section today with the caption, "Alex Rodriguez after striking out Saturday."

And I thought, Can you imagine being the pimply, twice-a-week shaving, nineteen-year-old minor league kid who struck out the great A-Rod? (He may have been pitching in high school a few months ago.)

The accompanying article said that Rodriguez struck out three times Saturday night. It doesn't say, but what if the same pitcher mowed him down all three times? Can you imagine the breathless phone call to his parents afterward?

"Mom, Dad, you won't believe what happened tonight!"
