It'd be worse if he did want to play for my team :P

I don't get it, and below is probably a reason why I'm bitter :P.

A-Rod has everything he can ever want. He's got the money where he can be a billionaire many times over if he invests it right. He's got a pretty wife, a beautiful kid, a nice big house.. he's got God given talents where he can challenge for the MVP year after year(whether or not he gets all his stats in the latter part of the game in a rout :P). He's on the team he's always wanted to play for, ever since he was a child.. he can pretty much get away with whatever he wants because he's a Yankee.

So what gives? Why is he doing therapy? Because a couple of fans boo him? He should know about that if he was such a Yankee fan how much pressure it is to play in such a major market.

If I'm bitter, it's because he's not thanking God each time he wakes up in the morning for living a charmed life like he's had. I always figured he was a headcase with the way he acts, but being in therapy despite getting everything he could ever want out of life at such a young age confirms it. Anybody would kill to live the life A-Rod lives even for only a week. If he can't handle it, why not retire and have a fresh start somewhere?

Sorry for the rant, but I really do not get why A-Rod has these problems.

Arod is human just like everyone else.

Just because someone has material possessions, doesn't mean that makes you happy by default. He could have home problems, problems with fans....who really knows?

He is a human, but like other celebrities, the media has this pedestal they put them on, making them more than human, larger than life. With the looks into his life the NY media has done in the past, it seems like he's living the absolutely perfect life.

The fact that he's undergoing therapy despite living a storybook life is what makes a Joe 9-to-5 like me that's not really all that content with his life at the moment confused.

Because his father bailed on him and his family when Alex was young as hell. I'd imagine that'd leave just one or two mental scars.

I'm assuming you work as A-Rod's live in butler.... beacause I don't see any other way you could know for certain that his life is a perfect one. Obviously he lives the life of luxury and is the envy of every person in this country.... but just because he makes tons of money disallows him to have emotional problems/needs that maybe therapy can ful-fill?

Maybe he had a problem that he thought therapy would help make it easier for him to play well... and so far he has. If he wants to take the initiative to get his feelings out that will help him play better..... then whats the big deal? How does it affect you in any way what he does on his own time?


It foesn't matter who you are... everyone has problems... some bigger than others and maybe he thought therapy could help? Who are you to criticize what someone does to help out their personal life?

Re: Official New York Yankees Bleacher Creatures Team Thread

Giambi needs to learn to catch the ball..... first he lets that ball get by him and Grudzialanek gets to third... and then he can't scoop that patented jump-turn-throw play by Jeter which would have been unbelievably pretty.... and a run ends up scoring





Put Tino back in, Joe.
