Like most Yankee fans, I have been wondering how A-Rod’s teammates will react to him being back in 2015. The media seems to think that he will be treated with anger and annoyance, with people walking on eggshells around him. Some fans think that he will be cast aside by teammates and the broadcasters for YES Network think the fans will welcome him back graciously IF he plays well. However, former teammate David Phelps, who was traded last week to Miami, thinks that he will be welcomed back warmly and that he actually does have friends on the team. Phelps speaks very highly of the former slugger, and he believes that as long as manager Joe Girardi keeps the clubhouse under control like he usually does, the team won’t resent him. Whether the fans will welcome him back remains to be seen, but if he can contribute to the team, my guess is that they will slowly forgive and forget, at least for the time being.
