“It is a good thing he did knock in those two runs in the Game 1 rally, or this October would remind people, exactly, of the ones when he looked like the easiest out on the team.”
— Mike Lupica
, in the course of a column in which he reminds readers, exactly, that this October A-Rod looks like the easiest out on the team.
I know you need your big guns to show up and that, for the most part, A-Rod hasn’t. But it does seem strange to me that a year after Rodriguez basically carried the Yankees to a World Series title on his back, he’s still getting the “A-Rod needs to step up or be remembered as an October choker” columns written about him.
