• The Blame Game

    From the Post:

    Blame Alex Rodriguez for the Yankees’ inconsistent ways. At least that’s what A-Rod says.

    “I feel when I swing the bat well, the team does better. I need to swing the bat better,” A-Rod said after the Yankees suffered a killer, 6-5, loss to the Twins last night thanks to going 3-for-13 in the clutch. “I need to elevate my game. I am the one guy to blame for what has been happening. I have been [ticked] at my game for a week now. I expect a lot out of myself. I have to get better.”

    What I feel is deep inside
    This is real and I won’t hide
    Go ahead, use my name
    I’ll be proud to take the blame

    You just did what I made you do
    You love me and I love you
    So if the way they talk can bother you
    Put the blame, put the blame on me

    So, who sings it better, A-Rod or Elvis?

      Yeah, I guess it’s “big” of A-Rod to take the blame all the time, saying he “played like a dog,” but it would be even bigger if he hit in the clutch — like, say, bottom of the ninth in game five of the ALDS, one man on, down by two. Instead of, y’know, hitting into a rally-killing DP.

      Yeah, at this point, it’s probably best for Alex to just let his bat do the talking.
