The True Yankee people have gotten to the AP. The AP!
We all know why the Yankees lost today: A-Rod. Take it away
, AP writer Ira Podell:
Try as he might to prove he is a true Yankee with championship mettle, his numbers continue to show otherwise. Rodriguez is 1-for-8 in the two games against Detroit and 5-for-40 in his last 11 postseason games. A two-time MVP and 10-time All-Star, he has gone 10 straight playoff contests without an RBI.
You've got it all wrong, Ira Podell. If there's anything that doesn't prove or disprove True Yankeehood, it's numbers.
(Scott Brosius has a .278 career postseason OBP. Alex Rodriguez, not counting this season's absolutely disastrous 1-8 (including two hard-hit outs yesterday), is sitting at .393.)
Mettle isn't measured in numbers, Podell. It's measured in moments
