Nice start by the Mets and Glavine.

Spring training games mean ZERO.

Seriously?  I don't understand most Yankee fans' dislike of him.

How about choking in the clutch? $20 million for that?

Seriously? I don't understand most Yankee fans' dislike of him.

I guess its just because just a few years ago our team was built on clutch players like DJ, Bernie, Andy P, Paul Oneill, MO, Tino the list goes on.  Now big shot ARod comes in, huge ego, arrogant SOB, highest paid player, and hes like 0 for his last 15 playoff games with 0 rbis.  He just sucks in the clutch.  What do we pay him for?

Well, he's HOF, isn't he? The problem is only playoffs, right?  Nobody forced George to pay him.

Believe it or not, hes a bargain.  His salary is roughly 25 mil every year, but the yankees only pay 15 of that.  The rangers are still on the hook for the rest of it.   The yankees pay Abreau 17mil per year, and he isnt considered to be that top tier superstar.  15 mil a year for .300, 35 hr, and 120 RBI is pretty good for todays market.

Its really just the playoffs, or clutch times like with RISP and 2 out

As a Yank, you have to be solid in the playoffs.  ARod gets a ton of crap (rightfully deserved), because he folds when the games are being watched by everyone.  He is almost getting to geeked up before the games, rather than just playing and having fun.  I am not so sure about his ego being large though.  He seems pretty laid back, but he does say some dumb stuff.

He needs to go out and hit a few homers in the playoffs.  I think managers actually strategize a great deal on how to pitch to him (obviously), but to make things fall apart on him so as he loses confidence and that monkey slowly turns inot a gorilla on his back...he is simply not clutch.  He is a choker, plain and simple.  Too much pressure on him with all the money and rtegular season numbers, for him not to be heavily weighed.

By the end of the week, I predict both the Rays and the Royals will be 5-6 GB in the standings.

Phillies are playing the Braves pretty soon. Pretty good pitching mathup, with Smoltzie vs Myers. I'm excited to see how Kelly Johnson does in the leadoff role, along with the new look bullpen.

Abbucs, I always love when the Sox open the season against such a pathetic team, helps get the early season momentum rolling.

A Rod has shown signs of coming out of his "Can't-Hit-Under-Pressure, slump." But
he still has a long way to go. Yankees stars have made their reputation with clutch
performance in the playoffs. Jeter, Brosius, Reggie, etc...

Reggie said it all back in 2004...

"It's not about winning 112 or 114 regular-season games, it's about winning 11 games in the postseason," Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson told the New York Post on Sunday. "You need guys that will help you win the last 11 games."
