Where Have All Of The A-Rod Haters Gone???

As I sit here and get ready for the start of Game 6 between the Yankees and Angels, I have to wonder where all of the A-Rod haters have gone…

Being the highest paid player in  the sport will come with a ton of expectations and criticism.  And while A-Rod has yet to be successful in the playoffs prior to this year, I see very little on the web about how he has carried the Yankee offense into this Game 6 showdown.

I don’t know why, but I expect the same levels of criticism and credit to be given by the media yet it rarely happens that way.  For years Alex Rodriguez has been tagged as a fraud or a choke artist.  He has had to carry that burden with him while still putting up amazing numbers during the regular season.  And this year, while he is batting close to .400 in the playoffs and driving in runs at a record pace he gets very little attention.

Listen, the Yankees line-up is full of stars.  Full of guys that can carry a team and an offense.  But A-Rod is the one doing it!!!  It’s time to give him some credit, pat him on the back, and thank him for making watching each and every at-bat he has had in the playoffs enjoyable!!!

Thank you Alex!!!

  1. I think A-Rod has gotten plenty of credit so far this postseason. His improved postseason is mentioned constantly in the AP game stories.

    As for me, I still can’t stand him.

  2. It’s hard to hate anyone when they are showing such natural, and I mean natural, talent as he is right now.

  3. Actually, I think I wrote recently he was getting too much praise and attention.

    As for me, he’s still a Yankee.

  4. He is one guy I honestly admit to admiring and also deriding at the same time.

    As much as I bow my head to him when he hits a long home run, I chuckle when I see him fail.

    Tsk, tsk – better try harder next time A-Rod.

  5. I second everything Night owl is saying. During the ALDS he got a lot of credit around these parts, and he’s still doing okay.

    But as long as I remember his slap happy ways, I can’t like the guy. Ever. Mo Rivera yes, Jeter I can sort of respect…Arod no.

  6. Since my team will never make the playoffs, the only enjoyment I get is seeing the Yankees lose.

  7. he still sucks 🙂
