Kobe Bryant calls A-Rod his friend. After this, one wonders if Rodriguez feels the same way:
Yankees fan Kobe Bryant on friend A-Rod mental problems “He forgets that he’s one of the best ever to play. I don’t”

Funny stuff, but I am not sold on the premise that A-Rod is having “mental problems.” Call me crazy, but I would not be at all shocked if we find out over the winter that Rodriguez is suffering from the after affects from that fractured hand he sustained over the summer or has some other sort of nagging injury.
