The Wall Street Journal brings you the facts, but SportsCracklePop brings you the hard hitting analysis. So, when theÂ WSJ pays some guy to sit with a stop watch and count the seconds that go by as the Yankees trot the bases after a homerun, they found that Arod is the slowest to make it around. But, what those old newspapers guys weren’t able to explain is why Arod is so slow. Keep reading for our analysis…
We believe there are three reasons Arod takes his time make his way to the plate after an A-bomb. Here’s the deep critical analysis from SportsCracklePop’s team of top baseball analysts.
- Arod likes to monitor the ladies in the crowd, so if he spots some hotties he’ll have 24.9 seconds to figure out their seat numbers so he can have his entourage invite them out for drinks later.
- There’s nothing better than a slow jog around the bases to rub it in the face of all the haters (especially those tools up in boston)
- Lastly, if you take longer to run the bases, you get your mug on TV for a longer amount of time. What egomaniac wouldn’t want that?
