Scapegoats and Excuses

What defines a superstar?
A superstar goes out to do his job and help his team win, playing through personal problems and injuries.
We thought Randy Johnson was a superstar.
We though that he wouldn't let things get to him.
We thought that he would help.
We thought wrong.
Randy Johnson is now blaming the New York media for his bad two years in stripes. He claims that if he sat out, the media would eat him up, if hew pitched, the media would eat him up.
Randy, the only reason why the media is after you is for two reasons. One, you started the whole situation when you first came to New York. Remember that altercation?
Second, like Alex Rodriguez, you are considered a superstar. We paid you to excel, not allow five runs per game.
Ok, you were injured.
Sit out. But wait, then the media will toss you around like an Anna Nicole Smith custody battle.
Here is a list of players that were injured during the 2006 season:
Johnny Damon, Gary Sheffield, Mike Mussina, Hideki Matsui, and Robinson Cano.
I don't recall the media attacking those players for their injuries.
But if you want to blame the media for yo poor performances, go ahead. Is it possible that you're not as good as you once were? Is it possible that you are no longer a superstar?
Don't blame the media, blame yourself.
