"Compared to other major league players, Brosius was not that great at hitting the baseball. Alex Rodriguez is very very good at hitting the baseball. He likes to hit it far." - fjm

am half-seriously considering getting it on a t-shirt.

  • I read this earlier today and I have to say my favorite part is how they refute all of Brosius' "clutchiness" in the post season, which is what idiot Yankee fans like to argue for and a point I am constantly forced to make:

    "You might remember the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 in 2001. Jay Bell laid down a shitty bunt, picked up by Mo Rivera, who quickly tossed to get the force out at third. Replays showed that Brosius had plenty of time to get Bell at first on a double play, but instead, he held the ball. Jay Bell would go on to score the winning World Series run. In other words, the last time Scott Brosius was involved in a professional baseball play, he basically choked on the biggest stage possible. He also didn't fare too well in game 2 of that World Series: see "GOAT."

    As far as the postseason in general, well, you be the judge:
    196 AB: .245 / .278 / .418"

    Oh yeah, that Rodriguez choker?
    .280 .362 .485

  • The quote should be put on a plaque in Monument Park:

    Question arising from these developments: If the Yankees win the 2006 World Series, will the Scott Brosius Fan Club, aka the psychotic wing of Yankees fandom, finally consider Alex Rodriguez worthy of his roster spot, or will they claim the team won in spite of him?

  • Duh, they'll not only claim the team won in spite of him but add that the yankees should trade rodriguez for a bucket o'balls. That, or Alfonso Soriano.

  • i like to think that maybe i can grab their attention with the simplistic front and then when they see the back it's like "*WHAM* NUMBERS, BITCHES!" and they'll be won over. LOOOOL.

    oh yeah juneh i saw this little clip earlier and thought you'd run off the england to do a shriek-over for the bbc
