I heard a stat last night on TV – and, if I heard it right, it said that A-Rod is batting over .700 when the Yankees win and around .100 when they lose. Granted, it’s only been 14 games. But, if that stat is true, it’s says something about his value to the team, no?
Update: I went back and ran the numbers for myself. See:
Either I heard it wrong or they said it wrong – but, while the numbers are not as wide as I thought, there’s still something there.
