Keep The Boras-Man Away
Thursday, September 27, 2007
The post-clinch celebration was a sight for sore eyes last night - champagne flowing, Torre crying, Shelley high-fiving everyone in arm's reach - and all that alcohol got people talking. Everyone had something to say about the team's roller coaster year, and they were all very heartwarming and tear-jerking and whatnot, but the euphoric commentary from Mr. Alex "Clutchosity Is My New Middle Name" Rodriguez particularly struck a chord with me:

---“This feels like home. It’s hard to believe that I played for another two organizations. So much has happened to me here, adversity, some success, that I feel like anything but New York feels weird for me now.”---

I understand that in the midst of all the hubbub and excitement of the moment (not to mention all that alcohol), folks are liable to say all sorts of emotion-driven things, but to hear A-Rod say something positive about his tenure in New York - and seem to actually mean it - surely brings a little hope to the hearts of us A-Rod supporters. We are all too aware of his opt-out option and know that the way he's been treated by New York over the past couple years might make it tricky to convince him to stay with the team, but he has proven himself to be such a vital part of the team that we've got to hope Big Stein and the Cash Man will recognize his value and make a hefty offer ASAP. It seems to me that if the offer is right, A-Rod will be willing to stick it out - for better or for worse.

Of course, we all know who really pulls the strings when it comes to A-Rod: The scary Boras-Man. If only it was he that expressed some sentiment for New York.

    October is almost here and again it's time for Alex to pull a "no-show" in the ALDS.

    He'll be singing a different tune on Monday morning the 10th.

    Trust me

    Actually, I think Alex has turned a corner. I like this new Alex - the one that isn't worrying about being perfect all the time or how he'll be perceived. It's refreshing, and maybe it will refresh him for the playoffs. Either way, I hope he stays.

    And yes - Boras is the scariest man alive...

    I agree with Kristin. I really love Alex, but lets see playoffs. I think he'll be amazing. Let's hope stupid BORAS makes a deal with Cashyy for AROD to remain in pinstripes maybe for 30 million?

    As the end of Baltimore's season ends on a strike out, the Yankees season just begins again. And hey....Maybe a little good news? Farny maybe pull somethin before givin up a home run? -grins-...

    27 in '07 boys.
