      Good think he has Rodriguez to take the heat off of him

      It started in the 2009 post-season, and he’s not been able to adjust for two years, now. Get ahead with him fouling off fastballs just out of reach of the good part of the bat (up around the shoulder, in on his hands, and about 4-6 inches off the outside corner), then whiff his with sliders down and in, or especially, over and over and over and over, with changeups over the plate, but no higher than ankle high.

      Until he and Long work something out on this, especially from the left side, the Tex of 2009 regular season and before is gone for good.

      Oh, and as an extra bonus, when he tries to wait on the change, the pitchers switch with FBs up, and he’s late and pops them up.

      @ Evan3457:
      True. He’s just lost out there. Disgusting. A-Rod was booed pretty badly yesterday.

      During the “dynasty years” we had guys that elevated their games during the post-season. Now, I’m afraid, its just the opposite.

      It’s the same as it ever was. Some guys have good postseasons, some have had bad postseasons.
