A-Rod Release

After hitting a tie-breaking, line drive down the line in the top of the ninth, A-Rod cathartically threw his bat, realizing that he finally produced a big hit. This action prevented him from going to second, but proved not to be a big deal since Matsui eventually knocked him home. Nevertheless, A-Rod showed his frustration (delight) on the field and is obviously bothered by his anti-clutchness. Another good win however and hopefully Loaiza will show up tonight.

  • Not to beat a dead horse, but how is it that Cashman is such a genius for keeping Loaiza from the Sox, again?
    (And that’s if one even believes that the shrewd young Epstein was even interested in the lazy shitbag in the first place.)
    You keep going, Brian! Keep preventing the Sox from picking up 7.00 ERA monsters!

  • But can you determine if it was A-Rod’s frustration in not being clutch or A-Rod’s frustration in no longer being the best at anything? It’s unclear whether this guy gives more of a a rat’s ass about winning or about his own personal accomplishments. Jury’s out. One clutch hit does not a Jeter (or a Sheffield) make.

  • ? Was it not SF who claimed this deal showed Kenny Williams to be a fool?

  • True. I did call Kenny Williams a fool. He is. But this deal no longer proves it, at least not in the short term. I am not always right. Almost always, but not always. ;)
