"A-Rod (ticks) everybody off, because there’s a lot of jealously involved," Torre said. "He makes the game look so easy, he plays very hard, and it’s something he has to live with."
Having pissed off another team with his questionable on-field interfering tactics (what is it with this guy?!), Joe Torre attributes the animosity sent towards the Anti-Jeter to his
hydrocephalus and ego "talents". Which makes us wonder: why don’t players hate Johan Santana? Or Mariano RIvera? Or Derek Jeter? Or Manny? Or Big Papi? Or Greg Maddux? Or (before he got hurt) Jim Thome? Or Mike Piazza? Or…well, I think we all get the point. So why do people, not just obsessed Red Sox fans, think A-Rod is an a**hole? Joe Torre is clearly not familiar with the theory of Occam’s Razor.
