A-Rod's slump guaranteed to end today!!!

Postby stomperrob » Tue Apr 20, 2004 2:42 am

Remember - ya heard it here first. For the first time this year, hell for the first time ever I'm benching him today against the White Sox - with my luck, this guarantees he will breakout in a big way!

First of all, Thanks for the sacrifice. :-D
I hope he can get out of the slump today. That would be great. :~(

well the sox top 2 pitchers pitched in the last series vs. the drays, so i would hope he breaks out. the other white sox pitchers aren't very good.

edited: oops i was wrong beuhrle pitches tomorrow, not that a rod shouldn't hit him though (but a-rod is 2 for 15 lifetime against him)

Thanks for making the sacrifice. This same strategy always seems to work for me as well. I finally got fet up with Berkman, benched him and he hit a grand slam. I would have tried this with A-Rod already, but I don't have a back-up SS.

Way to take one for the team. ;-D

If you haven't seen sprotscenter this morning- watch it. Harold Reynolds shows exactly why Arod is slumping. His timing is a lttle off so he's late on every pitch. That will obviously change but because he made such an effort to work on 3rd base he is... a little bit behind. You see? it all makes sense.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

aords line at Comiskey: 235 .308 .470

of cosre those are alot better than his season numbers so maybe he will break out of it.



Who is pitching tonight for the CWS? If they have anykinda curve arod is big trouble.

I'm benching him too, and I have similar mojo. I even picked up Royce Clayton so I'd have someone to play.
