for the second night in a row A-Rod failed to deliver with men on base

Trailing 6-3, the Yankees put their first two batters on against Chad Bradford (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6061) in the seventh, but Rodriguez waved at strike three and was booed loudly. The night before, he popped out with the bases loaded to end the eighth inning of a 7-6 loss to the Devil Rays.

Maybe KW can get him for $15 mil per this offseason!

Kidding aside, it's getting to be Groundhog Day in Yankee Stadium already. The Yankees pitching looks really old, and their defense has been passable most of this decade anyway, but is also really bad. Still, there's 158 games left to play.

and 19 with Boston :tongue:


Honestly I think A-Rod has to get out of there as soon as he can.

It's amazing how A-rod gets singled out in NYC. Giambi went 0-for-5 and didn't get booed and he left 6 men on base. Then yesterday when Captain Intangibles made 2 errors (which lead to a run )no said one word but the main highlight was A-rod popping out w/bases loaded with 2 outs in the bottom of 8th.

Not to mention that ****load of money he's raking in courtesy of that ridiculous contract. You don't give the fans their money's worth, you're gonna get booed, it's that simple.

All the other players are homeless and struggling to feed their families.

The Yankees are paying ARod less than Jeter, Giambi and maybe some others. The rest of ARod's money comes from the Rangers.

I throw out a question for all to ponder on

WHAT IF?

Boston and Texas do make the trade of Manny and A-Rod and then the White Sox trade Mags to Boston for Nomar?

How does 2004 and 2005 then play out?

My gut feeling is that both the Red and White Sox would still be waiting for October glory and the Yankees would have at least won a pennant since then.

We should all be thankful the original deal fell apart

As I recall, Boston requested that McCarthy be included in any deal. This was before his 2004 breakout season and subsequent callup in 2005. I'm guessing we probably wouldn't have won a World Series.

They boo him because they are ****ing ass clowns, the fact of the matter is last year he hit .290/35HR/121RBI. While a bad year for him, not too bad overall. He was born in NYC (if I'm not mistaken) it just shows you what ****ing idiots reside in the Bronx. It has nothing to do with the play vs. Boston, (stop bringing Boston into everything), They hate him because he isn't Derek Jeter and they are a bunch of degenerate ****ing clowns. He isn't a bad person, and will go down as the best hitter in the history of baseball, the fact that the Yankee fans boo him show their complete lack of intelligence, and the fact that Red Sawx fans think it was the play shows their complete and utter self absorption. Both fan bases are complete *******s for not respecting maybe the greatest hitter anybody has ever seen.

Try this "what if"...

What if the Angels team president hadn't stopped the Darin Erstad for Jon Garland deal from happening a few years ago? Rowand gets sent down to the minors. We probably never win the World Series. And we're still looking for a starting pitcher to replace Garland. Now we have them both and didn't lose anyone to get Darin.

Trust me the NYY fans that I know are still seething over what happened in the 2004 ALCS and what has happened since ( 2 knockouts in the ALDS )

Go over to nyyfans.com and see the A-Rod love OUCH

Highest paid players this year:

1. Jason Giambi, Yankees, $23.43 million
2. Alex Rodriguez, Yankees, $22.7 million

By that logic Giambi deserves to get it even more....he does nothing *but* bat.

Consistency is definitely the best.

That was before he signed his muti-billion dollar contract with Texas and became a unapproachable prima donna who doesnt care about winning.

Yeah somewhere along the line of having a dick for an agent who took advantage of an idiot owner, A-Rod became a villain.
