Quite disappointed in A-Rod!

I understand his frustration that he wants to win a World Series and since he's with the Yankees - they have not but it's only a matter of time before the Yankees get back in it and win it! He was in a hitting slump for a while so he's just to blame for some of their bad performance in games. I agree he is not a true Yankee or deserving enough to wear the pin stripes! The Yankees will win another World Series with or without him!!

I don't think people realize how much A-rod reallly means to an organization. Yes, he may be drama, but he has many qualities that are good for a team. First, he brings popularity with him to any team. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest players of all time, and he draws people to him no matter where he's at. Second, his production alone this year carried the Yankees into the playoffs. I think most people will agree that without a-rod the Yankees didn't have a shot to make the playoffs this year. The Yankees may win a world series again, just most likely it will not happen for several years. a-rod is worth every penny!

i have to disagree and agree with you. I really think that A-rod had fianlly hit the puinstripe worthness this year. I accepted him 3 years ago and have loved him ever since! For me the yankees just arent the same regardless . Sheffiled and Bernie without them it was so hard and with AROD i have been so thrilled. I absoulty love derek jeter. but he wsnt all that great this season... why is it always ok to blame the "new Guy" and not the " veteran?" Yes we will win a world series with or without him regardless... i just think sometimes money goes to the players heads... there are alot of changes past and new ones that have proven that. the end of this season alone there has been a few disappointmenets. Hopefully things will get better
