A-Rod on what’s different this postseason: “I came in and I’ve been having a lot of fun. I knew one thing. I knew I couldn’t change all the 0-4’s and 0-5’s that I’ve had in the past so for me this year the key has been to simplify things and let baseball do all the talking and just have fun and enjoy it. I also knew that we have a very good team, we have 25 guys that are very capable and that one guy doesn’t have to do more than anyone else, so I just came out and enjoyed it.”
A-Rod on the steroid report during spring training being his low point: “There was no question it was the bottom, no question. I think my life and my career were at the crossroads and I knew I couldn’t change a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made off the field and I looked at it as an opportunity. I knew that I was 34 and not 44 and I had a lot of baseball and a lot of life ahead of me and I had an opportunity to re-write or basically write the last four or five chapters of the book, of my book. I looked at it as an opportunity; I could have gone one of two ways. I could have folded and just given up or make the best out of it and realize that there was light at the end of the tunnel and for me to start doing things right on and off the field is something that I focused on.”
