A-Rod is staying so says Yankees GM Brian Cashman and player super agent Scott Boraz. Other than those Jeter fans that live in denial, there is no sane person that ever truly thought he was ever moving anyway.
In his first three seasons A-Rod has delivered an MVP award, a .300 batting average and 40 HRs per season. Postseason woes you say? Look jerk, it happens to more players than A-Rod. Think for a moment about the most feared hitter in baseball. You know, the one who is off to the best 5 seasons in the history of baseball - Albert Pujols. How has he done this postseason? Now what if the Cardinals fans and media started demanding they trade him because he's a worthless sack of trash that can't top the Mendoza line in the postseason? If they did trade him, about how many millions of people would think that the organization had gone mad and is just plain stupid? Well, guess what Jeter fans - BOTH of you, that's what the rest of the world thinks of you for contemplating such a move on A-Rod - STUPID.
He's staying - that's a good thing - he will be the one to lead the Yanks to ring number 27 (much to Jeter's chagrin). And, from the world of Pinstripe Predictions: A-Rod will put together the best offensive onslaught in the history of baseball in 2007.
In other news, the Yanks are reportedly shopping Sheffield to ensure he won't land in Boston. Sources close to the matter say that Sheff wants to be dealt to a hitter friendly ball park and to a franchise that can and will pay for his services. HOUSTON - we don't have a problem because that is where he is headed.
