Whats up with A-ROD?

Postby T bleep O » Tue Jul 20, 2004 8:52 pm

I know he has been hitting decent and been getting driven in alot but what is wrong with him. He doesnt seem to be on that MVP type path.
Is it just because of the yankees offense is not so great right now or the fact that he is hitting 4th instead of 3rd?

I just want to know if my first rounder will rebound and try to reclaim his MVP crown?

He did strain his back right before the ASB...perhaps that's affecting him a little bit. I wouldn't worry too much about ol A-Rod...he'll straighten things out soon ;-D

A-Rod is fine

66 runs, 24 HRs, 61 RBI, 18 steals and a .278 average is nothing to be worried about. He is still a top three player.
I know the future!!!!!!!

while he is a top 3 player he isn't putting up top three player stats. Still he is an absolute beast and I'd love for his owner in my league to give up on him.

Top three player?? He isn't in the top five in any category. Even Beltre has more homers than Arod.

Didn't we go through this at the beginning of the season? I wouldn't worry about Arod. :-D

We may have gone over it, but I still see no progress. And today the yanks have 9 runs already and Arod is stuck with a measly walk. Someone offered me in May Arod for Rolen/Loretta and now im beginning to regret my decision to keep my #1 draft pick.
