A-Rod is very damaged goods. His history with the Yankees has been marked by strange off and on the field behavior. For example, his barking out a sound when the Toronto Blue Jays 3rd baseman was attempting to catch a pop fly. Or when he tomahawked the ball out of the Red Sox player’s glove while running to first base. Or his incredible claim that he only used anabolic steroids during the 3 years while he played for the Rangers. No one believes his stories, and he exudes a lack of class and tremendous amount of insecurity. While he won the Yankees a WS ring in ‘09, the rest of his tenure has been strange, at best, and dishonest at its worst. Yankees fans have always recognized the guy is a distraction, a cheater, and all about ME.
Perfectly said, and I remember those incidents you describe above, ie A-Fraud's "barking" when the Blue Jays' 3rd baseman was trying to catch a pop fly. What a classless jerk. Never liked him since Day One.
Of course now A-Fraud has proven to be a classless, lying, arrogant, selfish POS jerk.
