Yankee fans have known the incredible exploits of Mr October, their own Reggie Jackson who finished season after season with post-season exploits that wowed the crowds and humbled Yankee opponents. In the 2000 championship series then young Derek Jeter was dubbed Mr November for his post-season heroics.
But never has baseball seen the phenomenon of a hitting machine like Alex Rodriquez in the first month of the season. A-Rod often the target of demanding NY fans boos and invectives even during MVP seasons is putting on an precedented performance of home run, clutch hitting and spectacular fielding. Senor Abril has broken open the record books for April hits, runs, rbi's, and homers.
Yankee owner Baron Von Steingrabber offered a surprising compliment to his millionaire third baseman: "Pretty nice job. . ." Yankees fans' boos have begun to subside though the Bleacher Creatures stiil can be heard chanting: 'Over-rated!!', when Alex disappoints with a double and only one run batted in.
