Enough already. Everyone please stop picking on A-Rod before we start feeling sorry for the guy. The Sox really have no beef. He didn’t dis’ them. And they won without him. The slap? Get over it. How many other players have interfered in the past? No one’s calling Reggie “Thighman.” Certainly Trot Nixon, who’s off thanking Jesus every time he knocks a grounder through the middle, is no one to talk. Come to think of it, Trot, snide remarks about another player are not very Christian. Go look in your own mirror.
Yes, A-Rod’s a little Stepford. No, he’s not Derek. Yeah, he’s a bit self absorbed. But let’s just appreciate him for what he is: Part of that great travelling carnival that is the New York Yankees. He’s a freak, but he’s our freak. And all he did last year was switch positions, play brilliant defense, and hit .290 with 36 homers and 100 rbi. We’ll take him.
