Make-Up Sex In The Bronx

Yea, so in case you haven't noticed Arod seems to have temporarily gotten back together with Yankees fans everywhere this April. For those of you who are oblivious to the sports world he is hitting .400 with 14 HRs, 34 RBIs, and a .453 OBP...slightly amazing.

Just for fun this morning in AP English I was doing some computing and it is worth noting that right now Arod is on pace to hit:.400 with 126 HRs, 306 RBIs, with a .453 OBP. I'd say those would be MVP type of numbers and probably would break just a couple records.

So as the sports world (Yanks fans especially) is/are going crazy with this right now and there is something that I wanted to talk about. I know what it's like to be an avid baseball fan and all, and I'm still jacked about Prince's game-winning bomb last night but Yankees fans need to wake up! As they obsess over Arod's stats and performance as if they had never doubted him since he dawned pinstripes their team is a pathetic 8-10 and is nearly in the cellar of the AL East. Look at your payroll! Look at your lineup! Look at what Mr. Rodriguez is giving you! There is no way that you shouldn't be well above .500 right now!

Now, obviously you nor I really believe Arod will hit .400, 306 RBIs, 126 HRs, so it's fair to say at this point that he's going to cool off. And then the excitement and new found love from the back together make-up sex is all gone. Yankee fans everywhere realize that they don't even have a winning record, have no pitching staff, and are underachieving big-time. Then the break up comes (again) and it's back to the ugly relationship between Arod and NYY fans and sports fans everywhere have to listen to the thought of Arod leaving next season.

Joe Torre owes Arod a big hug right now. Because instead of answering questions like, "why don't you have a pitching staff"" and "What do you need to do to get a winning record?", and "Why the hell don't you have a winning record?" he gets to just answer questions about how great Arod is....I got news for you Joe, it's not lasting forever so you better be ready answer the real questions if the Yanks don't start to turn it around. I know it's early but this is a very tough division and it's quite obvious that your pitching sucks. When you have a guy in the heart of your lineup hitting like this it seems like now would be the appropriate time to be putting some space between you and the Red Sox, not the Red Sox and you (if you know what I'm saying).
Point being, yea everyone is talking this up right now and why not!? He's having the best April in baseball history, but the Yanks are wasting it. And while Yankees fans everywhere seem to have taken Alex back, don't expect it to last...I see a breakup in the future.

I really believe that A-Rod will hit .400 with 306 RsBI and 126 home runs.

And to think, Yankee fans probably wouldn't have minded if he was run out of town last offseason.

Yea, that's exactly what I'm getting at. They wanted him gone last year and now they're all infatuated with him. And I can almost guaruntee you that as soon as he cools down and the team continues to lose they'll all be screaming for a trade

Which they do need to make some trades to get pitching. An Arod trade would provide a lot of good pitching but I don't think Arod is the guy you want to trade.
