It may have taken over eight years and 1,000 failed at - bats with runners in scoring position but Alex Rodriguez, star thrird baseman and perennial choke artist in the post season has finally came through with some big hits for The Yankees this October. Now I think he will go absolutely bat shit and bananas for the rest of the Post - season! I feel good for him because you know he was thisclose to taking a fatal dose of pills if he struck out with anymore runners in scoring position. You can't keep a good man down for too long. Keep up the good work!
