Alex Rodriguez-Media Enabler-Baseball Pariah

13 Jan

It was the 2005 Major League Baseball Season. In 2004, the Boston Red Sox stunned the living s–t out of the NY Yankees, by being down 3-0 in the American League Championship Series & taking the ALCS 4 Games to 3. During Game 6 at Yankee Stadium, A Rod laid down a Sacrifice Bunt to advance Derek Jeter to 2nd Base.
But, as is his ego in wanting to be the Star of The Show, A Rod committed an act of both selfishness and Stupidity. He slapped the ball out of Red Sox Pitcher Bronson Arroyo’s Glove.

Bronson, not Brandon Arroyo. FOX Sports Lead Baseball Analyst, (The Now Retired) Tim Mc Carver, kept calling Bronson, Brandon.

Alex Rodriguez, after a near riot in Yankee Stadium II, after Umpire Discussion, was called out for Interference. Derek Jeter was sent back to 1st Base.
The Next Day, A-Jerk became the subject of Ridicule, becoming the poster boy for Photoshop. His photos showed him slapping the ball out of Arroyo’s Glove, while he carried a Black Purse, wore high heels, wearing a Hamburger Helper’s Mitt. He was intensely ridiculed. Trust me, he deserved it.

But during the 2005 Season, there was a Battle for American League Most Valuable Player. David “Big Papi” Ortiz and A Rod played this all Season. While David had more Game Winning Hits than A Rod & key runs batted in, because Ortiz was primarily a Designated Hitter, the Writers also knowing that Alex Rodriguez was capable of more news for their papers, especially in New York, A Rod got MVP.

Alex Rodriguez is Big Money & Grievous Scandal. That he took Steroids in The Dugout and was looked into on “60 Minutes”, tells me about the “Ultimate ME Player.” But it also says a lot about Print & Electronic Media. A-Rod is Commodity to the News Business. They have their Jackpot. 

I think that Puking is not a bad idea. I hope that A Rod will treat me to a Bottle of Pepto Bismol.

We could all use it.
