In the deciding game of the American League Division Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees, would you rather have Alex Rodriguez or Eric Chavez play third base? And if you’d prefer Chavez in this situation, would you rather have A-Rod or Raul Ibanez be your designated hitter?
Apparently Joe Girardi is about to choose both Chavez and Ibanez over the active player most likely to break Barry Bonds’ all-time home run record.

Prediction: At some point this evening, Rodriguez is going to positively abuse Brian Matusz as a pinch-hitter.
