Boston’s outfielder praised Rodriguez’s playing ability but said New York’s third baseman wasn’t the "Yankee type." "I don’t look at him as that. He might be in a lot of people’s eyes," Nixon said. "He’s done some great things on the field. He’s one of the best baseball players in the game and probably will be when it’s all said and done.
"But when people ask me about the Yankees, I tell them about (Derek) Jeter and Bernie Williams and (Jorge) Posada. I don’t tell them about Rodriguez. … He can’t stand up to Jeter in my book or Bernie Williams or Posada."
Trot Nixon goes off. Not sure he’d get too much argument on this one, even from most Yankees fans. Click through for all the snippy snappy goodness. As for some of Trot’s other comments, I don’t know if A-Rod is a deadbeat dad or not, but Soxbaby Isaac sure didn’t get a limo ride to school at the age of 6 weeks – he was too busy running stairs.
