For those who haven't been paying attention, "Mr. April" Alex Rodriguez shuts down when the hits mean something. He prospers in no-pressure situations. Wait until the Yanks drop out of contention permanently. He'll go on a tear which will make Barry Bonds look anemic. We could be looking at a Triple Crown season with a .365 BA, 60 HRs, & 185 RBIs just in time for his opt-out clause. And some gullible club will pay him $30M/per season to do the same routine for them: clutch situations = pathetic numbers, no-pressure situations = Ruthian numbers. A-Rod, always the bridegroom and never the bride. He could literally play for 25 years and never win a World Series ring. Wherever he goes, it will be the kiss of death for that city. THIS WILL NEVER CHANGE.

You're completely right but the problem is also with the entire team. All of the players are big names playing for just that, their name, not their team name. There is no teammwork visible, I look at the field and I don't see a team, I see a bunch of big names just trying to become the best at what they do alone and that can't happen. We'll be lucky if we get a championship in this decade.

Maybe we should let him go home on off days and he will start producing again. He better start hitting against the Mets and Red Sox or the boo birds will be out in force in the Bronx

All I know is these knuckleheads need to get it together. I swore I wouldn't be worried unless they were still floundering by the end of May. Well, that's closing in. The season is slipping away. We're buried under boston and showing little signs of life. Payrod is sketchy at best, but Giambi has never been worth a damn.
Never should've let Tino go. Lost our 1st baseman legacy and tradition. We mortgaged the future on old has-been players like Randy Johnson. We're a c**t hair away from being in "rebuild" status if you ask me. This team has NOTHING on the dynasty of the late 90s.
