He is going to be battling this hip thing all season IMO, plus the groin. Let's face it, the guy is getting old and his body is breaking down for multiple reasons. I was extremely happy to score a 26 (I think) -year old, 5 cat stud for Gay-Roid. Also, I agree with the guy on the previous page. Unless A-Rods goes ballistic from here on out, there is no way he is drafted in the first round, unless it's one of those Yank-slurpers. He would need to start getting hot right now (he currently is even hitting the baseball, let alone home runs), and would need to continue through the rest of the season, while he battles the hip, groin, and any other issues coming down the line. Sound likely?
You stole the other guy blind.
As someone observed, he looks like an old man walking on ice. His HR/FB ratio is also alarmingly low, indicating that when he does put lift on the ball, he's just not able to put a charge into it anymore--at least not like he used to be able to.
