Hey guys. I was looking at some stuff today and came across the stat lines for Alex Rodriguez for the last several seasons. It is very interesting that at 32 he is starting to have high swings of variability after putting up consistent numbers year after year. Now, of course a down year for A-Rod still leaves him in MVP contention, but it is interesting that his numbers are fluctuating so much from year to year. This could be something that gets expounded going forward making it much harder to predict how/when he is going to be assaulting the record books.
I wanted to get your guys thoughts on this. Do you think the up year/down year pattern will continue? Will it become more exaggerated? Is this typical of guys exiting their "prime years"? Shoot me an e-mail if you have any questions.
