Merged Arod threads......

I'll boo Arod everytime he comes to the plate or fields a ball. That glove slapping incident in the ALCS did it for me.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

To each his own. As a fan of the opposing team, go for it. It's the Yankee "fans" that do it that need to find a hobby.

That's an awesome stat. ;-D ;-D

Unfortunately, it will likely get ignored, just as everything else detrimental to Yanks04's case is. :-/

Quite honestly I don't know why we bother with him anymore. I believe his arguement is only coherent enough for him to understand. Yanks, you can ignore the "stat heads" all you want, but one number you can't ignore is 9. 9 players on the field for your beloved Yankees. You need to call your team as a whole "chokers" b/c the greatest choke in the history of sports was not b/c of one person. If you can't get that through your head than everyone here is wasting their time. (Which sadly seems to be the case.)

BTW, Arod did his share in game 4 with a HR, but none of the other chokers could do anything to help him out. But of course you can't accept that to be true. ;-7

He also discounts A-Rod's performance in the 2004 ALDS, saying something to the effect of 'big deal, he beat up on the Twins in the divisional series...'

...but then torches A-Rod for struggling in the ALDS the following year. He cherry-picks situations/statistics/series which are helpful to his argument, and ignores the 95% of data that absolutely trashes his argument.

:-P

From rotoworld daily dose July 23

Alex Rodriguez has five homers and 16 RBI in 18 games this month. He’s driven in 71 RBI in 93 games on the season. Two-thirds of his 21 homers have come with runners on base. He’s batting .300 with nine homers in 110 at-bats with RISP. He’s 5-for-11 with two homers with the bases loaded. Obviously, his defense has been shaky, especially lately, but it’s been the rare exception, like Thursday, when it’s actually cost the Yankees a game. He doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment. Not even close.

When are the Yanks gonna back up A-Rod?

Postby johnsamo » Sun Jul 23, 2006 7:30 pm

This is nuts... The Yanks can't win it all without A-Rod and the fans are going nuts on A-Rod and it's affecting him. Like Kruk said, when Jeter had that long sucky streak in the first half one year, he didn't have the bronx cheers making it worse. They stuck by Jeter and Jeter found his way out. If the Yanks tank this year, it'll be the fan's fault and the other yanks that didn't try and stop it, not A-Rod...

A-Rod is 2nd best player in baseball, They're nuts the way they're treating him. This sort of thing has repercussions too... A lot of great Free agents aren't going to want to risk the A-Rod treatment.

Do we REALLY need another A-Rod thread?

This couldn't go in one of the other 2-3 already on the main page?

I agree with you for the most part. I dont agree its hte fans fault if the Yanks tank though. It pisses me off to see people booing their best player...but fans wil do what they do. I just think if you're a true fan then you will cheer them on instead of booing them. JMO
