Quick A-Rod update

Before the World Series starts, let’s look at A-Rod’s new career postseason numbers.

.307 / .408 / .570 / .977

Asshole. Choker. Head-case. Whose numbers, by the way, are now better than David Ortiz’s and Reggie Jackson’s in every single column.

Big Small Father: .283 / .388 / .520 / .908
Dr. October: .278 / .358 / .527 / .885
Sir Chokes-a-lot: .307 / .408 / .570 / .977

Who wants to bet A-Rod bats into a triple play every PA of the World Series?

Let’s look at the way he’s progressed this postseason. Remember, these are all his career numbers (his single-series numbers are make-believe fairy shit that can’t possibly exist).

Pre-ALDS: .279 / .361 / .483 / .844
Post-ALDS: .291 / .381 / .519 / .900
Post-ALCS: .307 / .408 / .570 / .977

This tells us two things. First: small sample size, regression to the mean, blah blah blah. Second: holy fucking shit A-Rod’s dumb, but, man is he good at baseball.

The following numbers are too outrageous to exist:

Easter Bunny series: .455 / .500 / 1.000 / 1.500
Tooth Fairy series: .429 / .567 / .952 / 1.519

What? I know, I know: small sample size the other way now. But the fact remains: what?
