Now I know there's something wrong with you. Nobody has said Bonds never took roids. Lol. Good assumption though.
Get a life.
Thanks for the advice, wise one.
Guess what, when the majority of fans and the media believe it and this includes the fans and media of his own team, there is probably a good reason for it and maybe you all should take a look in the mirror and stop being ashamed of your town, its media or its fan base.
How can I not be ashamed of my fan base? Look at your posts. Not just on this subject...on every subject. You are the joke of the Cafe.
Of course some of the things the media say have some truth to them. The problem is...you're a sheep. You follow everything they say. It's gospel to you. You don't open your eyes and look and make an informed judgement. Otherwise you'd realize how ignorant your views are.
Oh cry for poor old Arod.
Nobody's crying here, except you.
He is so unfairly criticized for his errors, his lack of playoff performance or his constant big game disappearing acts.
Well his playoff statistics are better than Jeter's, and I've rattled off his big hits in every thread that this has been brought up in. You conveiniently choose to ignore those posts though...just as you'll likely conveiniently ignore this post.
We all should be happy with 0 Hrs and 0 RBis in the playoffs.
Or the 2004 ALDS where he carried the offense...or early in the 2004 ALCS where he battered the Red Sox...or the entire 2005 season in which he carried the Yankees to a playoff birth en route to winning an MVP...
After all, 25 M dollars for a number 3 or 4 hitter and what were we to expect? Run production?...Silly us.
Obviously you don't know what run production is. It's alright though...someday you'll understand. Keep your chin up.
25 M dollars a year to hit 3 or 4 and he completely disappears during the biggest choke of baseball history in games 4-7 of the 2004 ALCS.
Yeah, because A-Rod is the New York Yankees. He is the team. If the Yankees lose it's 100% his fault...but nobody else. The fact that the entire offense and pitching staff imploded (including Rivera, Jeter and all your heroes) during games 4-7 is irrelavent.
Oh and by the way, A-Rod homered in game 4 of the series...a game that the Yankees would have won had Rivera not blown a save. Maybe Rivera's the choker? Oh no, just A-Rod.
Oh right, we should call him human and not blame him because others were culpable too.
Nobody is saying he deserves no blame. You're just being ignorant about it. How are you going to blame A-Rod for losing 4 games in a series? How is he more to blame than the entire pitching staff or rest of the offense? He's not. You just think he is becuase of your ignorance.
Oh pity poor Arod and his media consultants. The fans unfairly roast him and his 3-4 hitter, 25 M dollar a year choking ALCS performance. Cry, cry for poor Arod. Lets take up a donation for him since he is being so badly treated by NY fans and the media. I mean to expect production int he playoffs from a 25M dollar a year MVP? What were we thinking? We should give him the keys to the city and a rousing standing ovation every time he blesses us with his presence. He is really a clutch player and it is all the fan's and media's fault.
I fully expect you to ignore A-Rod's playoff stats and big hits...AGAIN. So I likely wasted even more time typing this up...but who knows. Maybe I'll get lucky and you'll respond to me with even more BS.
