Another A-Rod Controversy? Why Not…

31 05 2007

I was just relaxing Wednesday night, not doing much. Lots of sports on TV, but I wasn’t really paying attention to anything in particular. While my wife was watching Shear Genius, I decided to check out the score of the Yankees-Blue Jays game and got another reason to hate A-Rod.

As soon, as I switch the channel, Jorge Posada hit a routine infield fly ball. There were two outs in the top of the 9th so the runners (Matsui and A-Rod) were running. As A-Rod was running between second and third, it looks like he yelled, “I got it!” throwing the Jays’ John McDonald and Howie Clark off while their were trying to catch the ball.

The ball dropped and the Yankees tacked on another run to their lead. You could not hear A-Rod say anything, but you can tell he definitely said something as he was passing the Toronto players. After the umpires calmed down John McDonald and Blue Jays manger John Gibbons, the game resumed. The Yankees won 10-5. Just another un-classy move by an un-classy baseball player.

One question: Can this guy A-Rod avoid controversy?

Remember this one?

While the Yankees have been losing over the last few days, A-Rod has been out in Toronto going to strip joints, staying in different hotels than the rest of the Yankees, and getting photographed with women who aren’t his wife. Now this?

Here’s a piece of advice: start acting the great player you are. If you want to be remembered as a classless ball player, then you are the right track. But if you want to be known as the great offensive baseball player, then start acting like a man and not a little bitch. Just remember, the Baseball Gods have a way of pissing on those that piss on the game. Have fun at Fenway this weekend A-Rod…hopefully the Red Sox put you in your place.

Here are a couple quotes after the game

A-Rod: “That play happens to me three or four times a week, except it’s not at third base, it’s over in foul territory by the dugout”………..”I just said, ‘Hah!’ That’s it,” Rodriguez said. “Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.”

Blue Jays Howie Clark: “This is my 16th season and it’s never happened once”

Johnny Damon: “I wasn’t sure that was allowed. If it is, maybe we’ll keep on doing it.”

This is the kind of thing we can expect from A-Rod. He’s got absolutely no class. The Yankees are fast becoming the latest victim of his parasitic presence in a clubhouse. Another potential MVP season, but the team is tied for last place, 13.5 games out. His petty sandlot antics aren’t helping a team that he himself referred to as “desperate”. As if Yankee Pride hasn’t suffered enough. Go Red Sox.
