For the record, most of the other players in the lineup deserve to be benched as well.
I just think the Arod anti-clutch narrative is hilarious. Like he's 37 years old and has dealt with a ton of injuries, he's not the same player he used to be. Then you see reporters saying things like "If you remove Arod's stats from the 2009 postseason look how bad he's been". Like seriously? I could probably find quite a few players who look pretty bad in the postseason if you cherry-pick out their best year.
