In addition to being a fellow handsome Mediterranean ethnic, Eric Karros knows the score when it comes to Alex Rodriguez.
A few minutes ago during tonight’s ESPN broadcast of the Yankees-Rangers game, PBP guy Dave O’Brien and Karros talked about Yankee fans booing ARod, despite his well-above-average offensive production.
After O'Brien attributed much of the booing to ARod's defensive struggles, Karros broached the "clutch hitting" subject with such appropriate disgust that I think he stopped just short of saying, "Yankees fans are retards."
Karros followed up with (what I thought) was a very eloquent synopsis: [paraphrased] "It makes you wonder if Yankees fans care more about their team winning than criticizing the play of Alex Rodriguez."
Very well put, my Greek brother.
(And now I must atone for this compliment with twenty anti-ESPN posts.)
