Go ahead. Help yourself. Get it out of your system. I know that’s what I feel like doing after watching this game.
I almost destroyed my new 42″ lcd tv. It all started in the early inning when AK-Rod struck-out swinging on a ball that’s in the dirt with men in scoring position….. we were on a roll when A’K’-Rod was injured….. IPK showed some glimpse of his talent though…
If you think that A-Rod is a problem with this team, you have a problem.
The fact that our offence could only get 3 runs from a minor league pitcher is unspeakable.
season splits for A-Rod :
sOPS+ w/RISP : 23
tOPS+ w/RISP : 15
sOPS+ w/2 Outs, RISP : 15
tOPS+ w/2 Outs, RISP : 9
sOPS+ late and close : 40
tOPS+ late and close : 25
It’s a relatively small sample, but still ugly.
(thanks for pointing out that b-r was tallying these, Steve)
Is your point that one month trumps a career? If not, what is your point?
And while you’re focusing on meaningless sample sizes, why don’t you post Ortiz’s splits for comparison purposes?
Nobody has said anything about his career or suggested that Rodriguez is the main or only problem with the team or that his category of performance is unique. In fact, it was purposefully and clearly indicated that these are small sample sizes so that they should be taken in appropriate context. They are not, however, meaningless. Rather, they show that he has clearly not helped the team in those situations thus far.
The question is WHY are you focusing on ARod when so many other players have failed SO many times this year? Melky couldn’t lay down a bunt, then struck out on a ball eye high and 6″ outside.
I could go on and on. Yes, ARod has been VERY poor this year, so far (1 month) with RISP. But he is only a small part of our lineup. This is a TEAM sport.
And in those situations, he is well below the team average. That’s all I’ve said. I simply took what was suggested anecdotally in the original post and supported it with statistics. And I explicitly stated that none of that suggests that he is the main or only problem on the team. Anything you infer beyond that is your own conjecture. You’re welcome to it, but don’t expect me to indulge you further.

Then why does the first poster on this thread keeps singling him out?
can someone tell me why damon was playing at normal depth with a man on third and less than two outs in the bottom of the ninth? the entire outfield should have been waaaaay further in. anything that was hit to where they were playing would have ended the game. if they were playing way shallow they may have caught that hit.
