From ESPN:

"We just haven't seen the explosiveness and the production that we'd seen the first four months of last year,'' manager Joe Girardi said. "This is not just this year. It happened in August and September of last year, and when you get to a certain age, whenever you struggle, the first thing they're going to ask, is he too old?"

I don't think it's [just] age.

Tell me this: Do you get drug tested when you're suspended? How long before the benefits of juicing disappear after you've stopped taking them? The math seems pretty simple here.

That said, I would've loved to see him grab four HRs in four ABs tonight and walk off with the most insane 700 HRs in history. Guess he'll settle for a double and a third of an inning at third, which was a classy move by the Yankees (though them letting him play shortstop for that third would've impressed me more).
