A-Choke Cult Club

Postby HOOTIE » Sat Jul 01, 2006 4:23 pm

A cult tells lies, and gets weak people to follow. After seeing the 9 page locked A-Choke thread, let's actually put forth the truth (facts).

The cult, lead by it's infamous ringleader (Cafe vets know him), spews the following lies, while holding hands around a campfire in their Brosius robes chanting.

Arod is Mr. May.

Arod is non clutch, never gets a big hit.

Arod beats up on TB, but can't hit good teams.

Arod beats up on mediocre pitchers, but fails against the studs.


The cult never wants you to know this. :~(

Arods best career month is August easily.

.325 avg, 97 hrs, 245 rbis, 1.042 ops. And he's a better 2nd half player then 1st.

Arod in 2005 lead the majors in GWRBI, which means he had the most rbis that put his team ahead, that it never lost again.

Arod has a career .824 ops versus TB, yet has crushed Toronto, Anaheim, SF to name a few. Even has belted the NYY before getting there.

Arod is 20/53 (.377) 1.004 ops career against Clemens. In 16 abs against Johan Santana, he has 2 hrs. In 45 abs against Bartolo Colon, has 8 hrs, 17 rbis, 1.593 ops.

The group stops their chant and says no way. We can't handle the truth. We are about lies and living in fantasy. Group hug follows.

The Cafe does not endorse cults, or the lunacy that such groups spout.

Isn't a Cult Club redundant? ;-7

LOL

A-Rod may be the best hitter in the game (or was the past few years) but he'll never get the credit Jeter does until he wins a world series.

Yeah, A-Rod certainly didn't look clutch when he hit that 2-run bomb in extra innings a couple of nights back. ;-7

A-Rod postseason .305/.393/.534
Jeter postseason .307/.379/.463

A-Rod has hit HR and RBI at a higher rate and scored Runs at about the same rate as Jeter.

My point isnt that Jeter is a better hitter. Its that Jeter helped bring the Yankees 4 world series rings. The fans appreciate that. What has A-Rod won for the Yankees....or the Rangers....or the Mariners.

I agree. Fair or not, that's how he'll be judged. Jeter has the rings and is the posterboy for success. ARod came to town and in Game 6 of the ALCS ruined the Yankees rally by slapping Arroyo.

The Yankees had 4 games to win, and couldn't win any of them. Is that ARod's fault? Of course not. But he will always be associated with it until he wins one.

How did that ruin the rally? If he didn't slap the glove, he would have been out. He did slap the glove, and he was out anyway.

That had absolutely nothing to do with killing a rally. Like I've said time and time again, if Rivera doesn't blow Game 4 of the ALCS, A-Rod is a hero. He wins the ALCS MVP and a WS ring in his first season as a Bronx Bomber. A-Rod would be loved.

But Rivera blew the save, and the entire Yankee roster proceeded to fold for the next 3 games. The Yankees lose and the 2004 team is labeled the biggest chokers in MLB history. Not only that, but the hated Red Sox win, break "the curse" and Boston gets to finally rub it in Yankee fans' faces.

When a typical ignorant Yankee fan thinks of the acquisition to get A-Rod, they think he was supposed to guarentee a 2004 title. But it didn't happen. Was it A-Rod's fault? No. He played great in the postseason for the Yankees.

But he was 'supposed' to bring them that title, and the team didn't achieve it. Instead, the Red Sox did. So A-Rod is a choker, instead of a hero.

Pure BS that allows ignorant Yankee fans to cope with the pain of losing to the hated Boston Red Sox. Let's all blame A-Rod...

Pathetic. :-t

Well he got out with a guy on 2nd base and as the play originally happened they got a run and ARod got to 2nd. I'm not saying he really did ruin it, because you're right he would have been out anyways, but that's the way those same ignorant Yankees fans who blame ARod would remember it.

Yeah, that play had nothing to do with momentum... ;-7 :-?
