THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO REPLACED BY THE CURSE OF THE GRAB-INO
From today's New York Daily News:
Boos rained down from all corners of the Stadium last night, as A-Rod fell short of the World Series (news - web sites) - the main reason he wanted to leave the Rangers and come to the Yankees in the first place.
Oh, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Alex Rodriguez, who spurned Seattle for Texas "to win" and not for the money, once again failed to deliver in the postseason. It goes back to 2000, when he barely showed up for Seattle after Roger Clemens buzzed him high and inside in his first AB.
Rodriguez may have appeared to be a team player after moving to third base with the Yankees, but it always seems to be about him and not about the team. Maybe it's just appearance. I don't know. I know Derek Jeter wouldn't have flailed like a girl at Bronson Arroyo's glove while running to first in Game 6. I know no team with Alex Rodriguez on it has ever won a League Championship Series, even given a 3-0 lead in games and a lead with the most dominant closer in baseball history on the mound twice with the Series on the line.
And the Red Sox say they're they idiots.
