Dr. Fan-Love or: How Alex Rodriguez Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bench

    I enjoyed reading this article, which I thought very funny, but also incisive commentary. Living off the grid, I listened the Yankees-Orioles and Yankees-Tigers series on the radio and had to imagine A-Rod distractedly doing bizarre things like eating sunflower seeds in the dugout and chatting up girls in the stands, instead of being a team player, even while on the bench. Now I have a better idea, of A-Rod as just disinterested.

    One of the running jokes on WFAN is that the trniung point of the game is when the losing pitcher (e.g., one with a consistent, bad track record) steps on the mound and throws out the first pitch. The other trniung point joke is when such-and-such a player is inserted into the batting lineup. But “clutch double play” is even funnier than that. Well, maybe NOT that funny, since it cost us another game.Although it would be nice to see the Yankees make a credible run to the finish, I just don’t see it happening. What good is it if they’re good enough to MAKE the playoffs, but not good enough to WIN the playoffs? I don’t care to see a repeat of last year in that sense. They worked like crazy and then packed it up in the first round again.
