From Ted Keith (SI):
In fact, there are only two questions remaining for the team with the best record in baseball: Will Alex Rodriguez finally show up in October after batting .143 with 18 strikeouts in his last 16 postseason games? And how long will it take Yankee fans to boo him this postseason if he doesn’t? One at-bat? Two
This A-Rod theme is old, isn’t it?
Based on what I’ve seen this season, both inside and outside of the ballpark, it seems that fans have changed their ways in relation to Alex Rodriguez. For whatever reason, I can’t really imagine them booing this year. Maybe it’s because the Yankee lineup features an assortment of expensive tools and high priced weapons, so it’s not all on A-Rod. Maybe we’ve realized that he has a fragile psyche and booing hasn’t helped him in the past, therefore, we’ve opted for the nurturing parent model rather than the strict father (shout out to George Lakoff).
Or, perhaps I’m just imagining things. Hmm…
