A-Rod's relationship status deem him Mr. October II Worthy.
New York Post Reports "A-Rod romance with Kate Hudson has New York Yankees slugger delivering at the plate". Congratulations after 252 million dollars and numerous forgettable playoff games, A-Rod finally had a postseason series that wasn't a complete failure. Oh wait..... it was against the Minnesota Twins. Not only did the Twins have to fly to the Bronx hours after defeating the Tigers in extra innings, they had the 23rd best ERA in the league at 4.50, worst of all the playoff teams. They were better than Houston, Pittsburgh, KC, Milwaukee, Washington, Cleveland, and Baltimore. Of course a hitter of A-Rods caliber will have a decent series against a team like that. People are now calling him the the next Mr. October. First of all I don't foresee A-Roid, I mean A-Rod hitting 3 home runs in an entire series let alone a single game. If he does deliver and the Yanks make the World Series shouldn't more of the credit go to the 450 million dollars they paid for it, I mean Teixeria, Sabathia, and Burnett. A-Rod did nothing with pretty much the same team from the time he arrived in '04. Lets wait to see how he does against Halo's before we throw around playoff nicknames. If he delivers and makes it to the World Series, this is where he will fall. Torre knows to much about his habits and the Dodgers posted a MLB best 3.41 ERA. How many A-Bombs from A-Rod aka Mr. October II will we see then. If he fails to deliever fans won't criticize him, Kate Hudson will be in the same company as poor Jessica Simpson as girlfriends who were exiled because their significant others couldn't live up to the hype.
