Alex Rodriguez Just Doesn't Get It
No wonder so many people, even his own team's fans, dislike Alex Rodriguez. Dude is a pompous dickhead of the highest order. Listen to him completely miss the big picture...
"Mussina doesn't get hammered at all. He's making a boatload of money. Giambi's making [$20.4 million], which is fine and dandy, but it seems those guys get a pass. When people write [bad things] about me, I don't know if it's [because] I'm good-looking, I'm biracial, I make the most money, I play on the most popular team...." - A-Fraud
I don't know what's worse - A-Rod bringing his teammates into the mess of his own making, or A-Rod calling himself good-looking. Dude is a phony and completely into himself.
Maybe the Unknown Column can help out A-Rod here. I'll give it a shot: The reason people don't like the guy is because he sold out a winning Mariners team to become unecessarily rich with lowly Texas. When he realized that his very contract was proving to be an albatross to the Rangers ever winning (well, that and the fact that he's no leader no matter how good his numbers are), he weaseled his way into New York where winning comes a bit easier. And ever since then he's tried to pass himself off as a true Yankee when all he really is is an imposter, a hired gun, a dude along for the ride that the likes of Joe Torre, Derek Jeter, and Jorge Posada lead. He's a follower.
Look, Alex Rodriguez is a sellout and a phony and he crawled to New York to take the easy way out rather than winning on his own. The saddest part is that he came into the league with a Seattle team that was damn near close to a title...and he ditched that team.
And that is why people don't like him.
I will now go plead with the baseball Gods to please, please, please allow anyone but the Yankees to win the World Series. There is no way I could stomach watching A-Rod "earn" a cheap ring. Fuck that.
