Former White House spokesman has advice for A-Rod

Check out this compilation of A-Rod-related links by Ken Davidoff - posted at 5:57 a.m. Tampa Time - which includes his chat with former White House mouthpiece Scott McClellan, Wally Matthews' fascinating chat with the MLB commish and a reference to how A-Rod once briefly thought more highly of Davidoff when he mistakenly believed he had attended Cornell rather than Michigan.

After today I think the public will have had its fill of A-Rod news, at least until Selena Roberts' book comes out in April.

The tide already is turning against the nattering nabobs of negativism who keep pestering the guy, much as the public wished we'd stop bothering people with other subjects no one initially cared about, like, um, Watergate?

I got an email from a reader named Tim who wrote, "You guys in the press kill me. You are like a pack of wolves, circling the prey and picking away at it one at a time until it dies."

Later, he suggested our real target should be the commissioner's office, which looked the other way while all this was going on.

"Criticizing A-Rod makes your job easy," he wrote. "You should be thanking him." Well, that's certainly true.
