I really don’t have much to say about Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod). I do know that he might be the most talented baseball player in a generation. I also know that he sucked the life and money out of the Texas Rangers. A-Rod has been suspended from Major League Baseball for a year. He will be 39 years old when he is able to return to the big leagues. I think this all would have been different had everyone loved A-Rod. Unfortunately for him, he simply is a great player with a huge ego problem.

From ESPN:

The game is over now, and at least Alex Rodriguez can say he did not go down looking. He did not leave the bat on his shoulder. He raged against the case baseball made against him with such purpose, going all-in emotionally and financially, that he deserved to have some 9-year-old kid tell him, “Good job, good effort.”

But trying wasn’t enough for Rodriguez here, not even close. He had to find a way to win. And Saturday, when arbitrator Fredric Horowitz took 49 games off Rodriguez’s 211-game suspension for the slugger’s sins in the Biogenesis scandal, Rodriguez did not win. (more…)

Where's A-Rod?

I’m not a Yankee fan. I have never been and will never be. I have followed A-rod’s career because he was with the Texas Rangers. He is arrogant and full of himself. In spite of this is a great baseball player when nothing is on the line. There are only a hand full of games that really matter during the regular season. They all matter during the post season. Alex Rodriguez is just an average player in the post season.

If you have any doubt that 50% of baseball is skill and 50% is mental then look at Alex.


From AP:

Swat! Take that, New York Yankees.

Helped by a freakish invasion of bombarding bugs that rattled rookie reliever Joba Chamberlain in the eighth inning, the Cleveland Indians rallied to beat the Yankees 2-1 in 11 innings Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the AL Division Series. Travis Hafner’s bases-loaded, RBI single with two outs in the 11th scored Kenny Lofton with the winner. (more…)
