There Must Be Some Mistake

It's simply not possible for a guy to hit fourteen home runs when the season is only 20 games old and his team still be in last place?!?!

And how is it A-Rod only has 8 walks? Where's the respect?

Less to do with respect than to do with who's batting behind him in the line-up.

Jeter in front of him and Giambi behind him doesn't hurt, does it?

- Abreu is 0 for 20+ and batting around .250. Giambi is hitting okay, but trend last couple of years is hit/miss (30+ hrs, but only mid-200 avg). No 6 batters so far are little threat.

- A-Rod is also tied for 9th in Strikeouts.

- With NYY starters only averaging 4+ innings, the other teams know they'll get a shot at the dismal NYY relief staff

- A good portion of his homers have come in blow-outs (MIN/CLE) or when his team is behind (like TB) or when a BB is not an option (2 on or bases loaded like against BAL)

Not to worry though: He won't hit 'em when it actually matters.
