Three things that we know to be true about Alex Rodriguez this season:
These three facts, when examined together, support the theory that A-Rod is pressing this season – and that’s his biggest problem.
Basically, in spots where Rodriguez feels that he has to make something happen – he fails. I wonder if Jim Fannin is focusing on these areas with Alex?
This all also makes me think that, if the Yankees can get A-Rod into a spot where he doesn’t need to be “the man” – like in 2005 – then perhaps Alex will rebound once that happens.
This whole thing reminds me of the best baseline in the history of modern popular music. I won’t say it – because then it will stuck in your head for hours.
And, as the three faces of Alex Rodriguez has shown us this season, having something stuck in your head can be a bad thing.
