Alex Rodriguez’s career batting line is .305/.390/.576.
Alex Rodriguez’s career postseason batting line is now .307/.408/.570.
Can we finally agree that Alex Rodriguez isn’t a weak-willed, unclutch, team-killing choker? Can we just recognize that his postseason struggles (which were grossly exaggerated, by the way) were just the randomness of a small sample size? With that explanation in mind, can we do away with the idea that postseason futility means a player lacks fortitude or some superior moral quality? Please?
More than a few people owe Rodriguez an apology for attacking his character and gumption over the last several years.
