They do not call him A-Fraud or A-Choke for nothing.
time and time again we've had this argument and you've consistently been proven wrong as we've pointed to FACTS, not mere conjecture, and shown you that Jeter choked just as badly as Arod did, if not worse, actually he did much worse than Arod, in the Red Sox series when your team embarressed itself, letting a team come back from 3 down for the only time in the history of the major leagues. The Yankees choked as a TEAM. And while you could make the claim that A-Rod is the Peyton Manning of baseball, I'd say you'd be wrong. A quarterback touches the ball many more times than a hitter will ever in a baseball game and he is vastly more important to his team than 1 single baseball player. Maybe you could compare a pitcher to a QB but I still think that would be a stretch.
If you take the small sample size that you are using, the red sox series and perhaps one other, you might as well go ahead and start ripping on your entire lineup From Jeter to Mariano Rivera (who can forget the GW HR to Ortiz?) to bernie to sheffield to matsui to posada to yes, Arod. But to single out your best player is ludicrous especially when you cling to the belief that your golden boy Jeter has never choked which is blatently false.
You annoy us with these baseless claims and frankly, I'm sick of it and I'm sure everyone else is as well but I'm kinda annoyed already so I'm gonna say something about it. How can you call yourself a fan of a team and then turn around and belittle the guy who is BY FAR your MVP and best player. Unbelievable.
To answer the real question: I don't really want to own anyone from the white sox, but I have and will continue to do so cause I can seperate real life from fantasy and hey, I only have to cheer for my players to do well, I love cheering for the white sox to put up 10 runs and then lose.
