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 players 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.

barking is nothing. In one game Jeter, running between second and third, shouted “mine” as he ran behind the short stop,the short stop stopped backing up for the pop up, the left fielder heard “mine” and stopped thinking the short stop had called it. The ball bounced on the ground about 10 feet behind the short stop and about 10 feet in front of the left fielder. Caught on film, it was hilarious.
