If you watched tonight's game and still don't understand why my dislike for A-Rod has little to do with sour grapes over the fact that he signed with New York instead of Boston, I'm probably not going to be able to explain it to you. A-Rod still apparently doesn't realize that physical assault in order to break up a fielding play is not an advisable way of avoiding an out. Except, of course, when the umps don't call you on it anyway, I guess.
I don't care how far back they are and I don't care what the score was at the time. Dick moves like that make me wish the lead was 20 games already and the score 20-3.
