Remember when the Yankees measured the success of a player by what he did in October? Yeah, me either. Now the Yankees are playing "Must win" games in April and talking about getting the monkey off their backs with grand slams against the Orioles in game for of the season, instead of game four of the World Series. But for Alex Rodriguez, he evidentially needs all of the success he can get. This is the kind of thing you would expect from the Kansas City Royals, and not the marquee team in baseball. Holy hell, Yankees fans, have a little self-respect here.
This must be what happens when you go so long without winning a World Series.
"I was so excited. I felt foolish running around the bases like it was Little League. I just remember I almost knocked [Larry] Bowa over at third. I saw the fans kind of rocking behind him. It was kind of cool."
Wasn't this the same thing people were saying when A-Rod had a game winning hit in that World Championship deal last year? Still, is there any superstar you would rather face in a clutch situation than A-Rod? This will do little to deter the notion that he can't win the big one. Until, of course, he actually goes out and does it.
