I really love FJM.

it seems like A-Rod's reputation as a postseason failure basically stems from 3 straight bad series. Here's his line from those series:

16 games, .183/.300/.333, 10 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 0.81 RC*/G

..............

C Yogi Berra, 47WS-50WS ... 14 G, .140/.204/.260, 6 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 0.64 RC/G
1B Jeff Bagwell, 97NLDS-99NLDS ... 11 G, .128/.261/.128, 3 R, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 0.64 RC/G
2B Jackie Robinson, 47WS-52WS ... 19 G, .212/.342/.303, 9 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 0.79 RC/G
SS Derek Jeter**, 01ALDS-01WS ... 17 G, .226/.262/.290, 5 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 0.47 RC/G
3B Mike Schmidt, 77NLCS-80NLCS ... 13 G, .164/.233/.218, 4 R, 0 HR, 3 RBI, 0.54 RC/G
OF Babe Ruth, 18WS-22WS ... 14 G, .211/.333/.368, 4 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 0.71 RC/G
OF Mickey Mantle, 61WS-63WS ... 13 G, .130/.216/.217, 3 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 0.23 RC/G
OF Ted Williams***, 46WS ... 7 G, .200/.333/.200, 2 R, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 0.43 RC/G
DH David Ortiz, 02ALDS-03ALDS ... 14 G, .200/.231/.280, 0 R, 0 HR, 6 RBI, 0.43 RC/G

I think we can all agree that this team of chokers could never make it out of the first round.

** Jeter also had a pretty crappy 98ALDS-98WS ... 13 G, .235/.328/.294, 7 R, 0 HR, 3 RBI, 0.77 RC/G

I believe the Babe also made the last out of the 1926 WS trying to steal second base. That guy was awful.

This article should make you chuckle:

Best move the Red Sox ever made was selling him to NYY

That is not far from reality if you watch ESPN. After they got knocked out, Philllips, Kruk & Co. were discussing the trade issue and if the Yankees could risk another down year by ARod. .290 35 HR 121 RBI

Just continues to prove that the ESPN is fly paper for idiots.

This pisses me off. He plays for the Yankees, he has hit 57 homers in a season before. HE IS NOT GOING TO DO THAT EVERY ****ING SEASON! Chill, ESPN, 35 homers is not bad!

Yeah I sorta believe the drillrod hype for a while... then I went and looked at his stats and was amazed he was doing so well. .290 35 homers is an OFF year?! Then Derek Jeter really sucks.

Agreed. If I'm Joe Torre, I'm perfectly happy with his offensive numbers. His defense is another matter, but that's what happens when you start playing people out of position. Shefield isn't any better at first base. Why Torre insisted on playing him there instead of Balco Man, who actually is a first baseman, is beyond me.

Wasn't Mike Schmidt in the Philly fans' doghouse for a little bit? I've heard some stuff about that before. I fully understand the point you're trying to make, though.

Agreed. He isn't going to do that every year. You want an off year? Try having the year Frank Thomas had in 1999 or the year Paulie had in 2003. I think both of those guys would take 35 homers anyday.

Schmidt had a love-hate relationship with Phillies fans, much like the relationship White Sox fans have with that big guy who plays for Oakland.

OK, thanks for clearing that up. I've just heard some stuff about Philly fans getting on Schmidt before.

Ask Philadelphia fans about Santa Claus. They HATE that rat bastard.

Every Phils fan I know, and I do know many, adore Michael Jack Schmidt.

Balco man has to shave his back in between innings

It was indeed at the time regarded as a stupid play. Babe Ruth's record-setting contributions to the wire-to-wire World Series-champion 1927 Yankees helped people get over it.
