Alex Rodriguez's streaky stretches, both hot and cold, have been chronicled on this blog. With the Yankees' elimination from this year's MLB play-offs at the hands of Cleveland last night, here's an accounting of his post-season woes from a Yahoo! Sports article...

He is mired in an 8-for-59 (.136) playoff spiral dating to his Game 4 home run against Boston in the 2004 ALCS.

New York's biggest bopper is hitless in his last 18 playoff at-bats with runners in scoring position.

Rodriguez hit a solo homer [in the finale of the Cleveland series]... ending a streak of 57 postseason at-bats without an RBI...

Hitless in his last 27 postseason at-bats with any runners on base, A-Rod is certain to again face some criticism after his up-and-down postseason.
