YANKEE DOGHOUSE 21: Alex Rodriguez

This is absolutely mind-blowing.

A-Rod's numbers for the past 2 series:20 AB, 2 H, 14 K

Fourteen strikeouts!! I was ready to make Craig Wilson the object of my ire tonight (4 whiffs today), but then I realized how ridiculous that would be with A-Rod's "performance" of late. The guy seems like he's crawling out of his slump, and then manages to sink even lower.

Doesn't look like he's make it to .300 this year (I thought he would-- even as late as a couple of weeks ago), but he'll certainly make 30/110. His numbers will be comparable/better than 2004 (.286, 36 HR, 106 RBI), believe it or not, but he's gonna have a hard time undoing the damage he's done to his image. We'll be right back where we were a couple of months ago when the Yanks return home Tuesday night: raspberries galore for A-Rod. Except now we have a 6 1/2 game lead in the AL East.
