The Week A-Rod Hit No. 600

Between last Friday’s “Week in Review” and today’s, Alex Rodriguez collected exactly one hit. But it was the hit: His 600th career home run, driven into Monument Park three years to the day after he hit No. 500 across the street. After struggling against Tampa Bay and Toronto in search of that home run, no one’s happier than Rodriguez to get it over with. Plus, with that milestone out of the way, the Derek Jeter 3,000-Hit Watch can begin in earnest. But what happened this week that didn’t involve Yankee Stadium security guards?

The Mets’ season slipped away, but Omar Minaya’s job is apparently safe this winter.

The Yankees added low-risk reinforcements in a season where winning the division could be important.

Darrelle Revis held out, while Giants camp remained dull.

The important dates on the Knicks schedule were released. Meanwhile, the team signed Roger Mason Jr., and, for some reason, named Isiah Thomas a consultant.

We looked at the jeans mogul at the heart of cycling’s doping problems.

And we visited MCU Park on Coney Island.

That’s it for us. Have a nice weekend.
