From the “Overvalued Opinion of Oneself” category:
NY Times print edition today:
“Rodriguez had pointed out beforehand the the Rangers asked to trade him, and he did not think he deserved to be booed.
‘No, I wouldn’t boo, without a doubt’, Rodriguez said. ‘Simply because I came here and I played the best baseball I could play. I won the MVP, two Gold Gloves and three player of the year awards. The way I played between the lines was special'”.
Yeah, no sh-t, Alex. We know you’re a good player. But these kind of comments are the stuff that draw the boos – self-promoting, supremely confident blather that decontextualizes your effort, makes everything about YOU. We know you’re good, but you don’t have to tell us. BOOOOOOO.
