Olney! Rodriguez! A-Rod! Bust-O!
I've now seen and/or heard Buster Olney on four occasions over the last 2 days. Every time Buster was asked what the "biggest story" of opening day would be, the answer is obviously...... A-Rod, of course. To paraphrase every appearance by Olney: "If he goes 0-for-2 with a couple of strikeouts, the fans are going to get all over him. It willbe a bad year for A-Rod in New York."
So now it's not even 10 post season at-bats by which we should judge a player. Now it's the first two at bats of the season. I bet when Alex struck out and had an error in the first, Olney started rubbing his crotch, all the while ignoring the Jeter error.
Oh yes, and Rodriguez homered in the game, but it was "meaningless" as the Yankees were ahead by one. He was just "tacking on" runs when "the pressure was off."
