It is no big secret that something is wrong with Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.
Think about it….
- Yankee fans have never warmed up to him.
- He recently got hung out to dry by one of his baseball idols, mentors and supposed friend, Reggie Jackson in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated.
- His own peers even voted him the most overrated player in the game today, again.
My gosh, I am shocked that A-rod even wants to play baseball any longer, let alone live.
What I don’t understand is how someone with such natural talent like A-rod could decline so fast?
It just seems very abnormal, and you have to speculate that something else is on with A-rod.
So, I have complied a list of possible blames behind the lack of A-rod’s production:
1 – Steroids/PEDs after effects speeds up aging process.
3 – Reggie Jackson situation brought back abandonment issues from his childhood so back to the shrink.
4 – Overdoing everything from diet, to workouts, to trying hard to please everyone else with every at-bat.
5 – His own fan base actually yearns for him to fail, which just sucks. period.
The number of excuses and blames could go on forever, and in all honesty I do not even think A-rod knows really knows the issue just yet.
And please do not give me the, ‘he is turning 37-years old in a week.’
A-rod even told Newsday’s Eric Boland back on June 16th that he wakes up “giddy” every morning and said it’s because he’s never felt better.
So, what gives?
I am leaning toward #2 on the list above, no offense meant towards Ms. Wilson but in the past A-rod tends to rake when he gets a taste freedom.
What do you think A-rod’s problem is???
