I mean, I'm pretty sure I
do. Jeter had like two hits, and Posada hit .0003, and Wang had a 19.00 ERA in two starts...but it's gotta be ARod's fault, right?
What do you think, Jack Curry
, sportswriter for the Newspaper of Record in the United States of America?Yes, Rodriguez singled with the Yankees trailing, 6-1. Yes, he drilled a homer against Rafael Pérez with the Yankees behind by four runs for his first homer and first run batted in across the last 16 playoff games. He also popped out in the ninth. But Rodriguez’s first two at-bats, those uncomfortable at-bats, will stick with him. Especially if this was his last game as a Yankee.
Sure, he homered and singled in five at bats. But what's that got to do with whether he hit well in the game? It's totally irrelevant. First of all, when he hit the solo home run -- achieving the best possible outcome in that at bat -- his team was down by four
. What a selfish asshole that he would only hit a solo
home run in that scenario. What's the deal, ARod? Only care about yourself? Only want yourself
to cross the plate?
And what's with that single? "Oh, I'm ARod, I'm so great! Blah blah blah! I'm such a choking selfish dick I'm only going to get a single instead of a grand slam because I want everyone to look at me while I'm on base!" Enough of his bullshit. I say run the guy out of town.
And check this out:The sight of Rodriguez sweating and swinging ahead of any of his teammates was intriguing. Was Rodriguez continuing his penchant for working harder than anyone else? Or was Rodriguez concerned about another postseason game and the potential for failure?
Unbelievable. The guy comes out for early BP and he gets attacked for working too hard
. There is absolutely nothing this man can do that will not lead to a dummy writing negative things about him.
By the way, I have been in England for a week. Before I left, I went on record saying the Padres were definitely the most dangerous team in the N.L. West. I haven't checked the papers -- I assume they advanced to the NLCS, right? Yeah. I'm sure they did. I'm not even going to check.
