A-Rod conquered another demon last night by annihilating Boston pitching (Schilling has been a particular bugaboo for Rodriguez). Not much more to say about these numbers: 12 HRs and 30 RBI in 15 games!
Questions for the Mets fans: Now that the world's softest hitting streak is over, when do you start to be concerned that A-Rod has as many HRs since last Saturday as David Wright has since last year's All-Star Break? Are you beginning to dial down expectations (short-term or long-term) for the face of the franchise? With only 6 HRs over his last 300+ ABs, these questions are officially legitimate. He has been a pretty run-of-the-mill 3rd baseman for a significant stretch now.
