A-Rod Silences Texas Fans but Yankees Lose

By JAIME ARON, AP Sports Writer 

ARLINGTON, Texas - With his first swing, Alex
Rodriguez silenced the booing fans who greeted his
return to Texas. A few innings later, the sellout
crowd had plenty to cheer about — mostly from the kids
A-Rod was so glad to leave behind...

...He made things worse — with fans and former
teammates — with a magazine article released this
spring in which he wrote that he was upset the Rangers
had become "Alex and 24 kids." 

Many signs Friday night jabbed at that line. So did
the sound crew. The last song played before Texas took
the field was "The Kids Are Alright" by The Who. 

It's true — these kids are doing just fine without the
player many consider the best in the game.
