Semi-Off Topic Regarding A Team Many Of You Dislike

One of the things about that I find annoying about living in the land of Yankee fans is not just how stupid most of them are, but how stupid most of them are about their own team.  I mean, you would not believe how many of these clowns genuinely believe that Alex Rodriguez is somehow a liability because he isn't a "true Yankee" or whatever horseshit those morons think.  I usually react to that by saying something along the lines of "OK, how about you trade him to the Orioles for Melvin Mora and another player of your choice?"

What I find particularly asinine is the focus on his post-season problems since he's been on the Yankees.  Nobody on else on that team has been hitting in the postseason since he got there, but somehow those losses are all his fault.  I've even heard fans say stupid shit like "you know, A-Rod is making the rest of them not hit."  Below is a link to an article from the Village Voice that I read about in Rob Neyer's column comparing A-Rod's postseason career (42 games) to Reggie Jackson's first 42 postseason games.  Guess what?  Mr. Un-Clutch has played slightly better than Mr. October did during his first 42 postseason games.   While we're at it, A-Rod's postseason stats really aren't that bad anyway and Reggie Jackson was a bigger asshole.  Hey, you know who also sucked in the postseason?  Ted Williams and Willie Mays.  Losers!
