image for Yankee Fans Boo A- -Rod After Near Perfect Start!
Yankee fans Ruth and Ruthless tell press A-Rod still doesn't satisfy us!

With deafening chants of "You're Not Perfect!" and "What only One Grand Salami?!" Rabid Yankee fans have continued to torment best player in the game Alex Rodriquez. A-Rod has had an unprecedented hot start off the blocks this year with almost a home run per game, two game winners including a bottom of the ninth grand slam and more RBI's in two weeks than all of last April. No major leaguer has had so many home runs so soon in the history of the show.

Alex in his usual humble insecurity apologized to Yankee fans and told them he would try harder. Owner George Steinbrenner sided with the fans and said if he didn't get a hit for every dollar he pays out to the slugger, he wanted his money back. Yankee payroll master calculated that that would be two million hits this year in less than 600 at bats.

Sports psychologist, Scooter Jung, thinks that Yankee fans are suffering from a kind of "Stockholm Syndrome" as is A-Rod: "When you have been held hostage by a maniac like Steinbrenner for this many years you are likely to exhibit all kinds of aberrant behavior!"
