New York Yankee Fans Show Alex Rodriguez No Support
I’ve never seen a star player (who is a two-time MVP, by the way) receive so little support from his home fans. Sure Alex Rodriguez has struggled in the post season since he arrived in 2004, but is he the reason for the Yankees not winning the championship those years? Absolutely not. He wasn’t the only bat struggling in the post-season, the main reason was the unreliable starting pitching. Why Yankee fans are giving A-Rod the 2005 Carlos Beltran treatment is beyond me. How can your players expect to succeed if you keep booing the guy at home? To say he’s a selfish player is asinine. He was the best shortstop in the league and he deferred to Derek Jeter by switching positions. Now he is one of the better defensive third baseman in the league. A-Rod has had playoff success prior to joining the Yankees, hitting over .300. True fans should remember his juggernaut attack against the Yankees in the 2000 League Championship Series. He’s not going anywhere, you can’t trade the guy, you definitely can’t release him, and so Yankee fans might as well cheer for him.
