Let’s look at Alex Rodriguez’ post-season career to date – sans the 1995 post-season where he didn’t play outside of getting two plate appearances over two series. First, here are the post-season series where A-Rod was a star…two coming in winning efforts, both against the Twins, and two coming in losing efforts:
Next, here are A-Rod’s stats from the 2005 and 2006 ALDS – where he was terrible:
Lastly, here are A-Rod’s stats where he had a so-so post-season…one ALDS as a Mariner in a win over the White Sox…and two losing series as a member of the Yankees:
Yeah, I know his numbers above in the 2004 ALCS look good…but we all know how he did offensively in the last four games of that series.
Looking all this over, is it correct to say the only two post-season series where Alex Rodriguez batted like a superstar, and where his team won, were the two ALDS match-ups against the Minnesota Twins? Anywho, that’s today’s wild thought. What do you think…looking at these stats? Should A-Rod wish for more post-seasons against the Twins?
