The Curse of A-Rod

Baseball historians recall that A-Rod played variously for the Mariners and the Rangers prior to his most recent move to the Yankees.

In 2001, their first A-Rodless year, the Mariners won 116 games and the AL West. That same year, the A-Rod "enhanced" Rangers went 73-89. They have had no winning seasons since.

And now the Yankees are 8-11, their worst start since... oh, I don't know, but the Boss can't be happy that April is nearly over and the team has a bigger number on the right than on the left.

Theorem: The other players knew it was all about A-Rod and resented him, negatively affecting team play even when he was in Seattle. Seattle loses A-Rod, team immediately springs to life and crushes all opposition... except in the postseason. And now, the Rangers are off to their best winning percentage ... since before they acquired A-Rod.

Corollary: A-Rod is now an anchor around the Yankees' necks.

The proof of this will be in September.

Please to note, I'm not commending this as anything other than superstition. But.
