BHJ, I know you are just reminiscing about Prime Time Neon Deion Sanders drawing dollar signs in the batters box and stopping to tie his shoes during home run trots.  Don't worry I am sure we will get some of that bling and swagger back.




Was not a Deion fan, nor was I a fan of Polonia, but I would take both of those guys over Arod. 


HANK!!!!  Make it happen.




You can't possibly prefer Polonia over A-Rod.




Yes I can.  My distaste for Arod is that strong.




So it's not as much about what he's done as it is about going all Pete Rose or Lance Armstrong to avoid punishment?


We know enough now.  Why should baseball be entitled to a scape goat, especially one in Yankee pinstripes?




No, I think with me it is about ALL OF THE AROD moments over the years. 


Starting with PEDs


the Bronson Arroyo ball slap


walking across the mound against the A’s


the HAH! Against the Rays


the kissing the mirror picture


the baseball with the note on it to the female fan


out with a stripper while still married




I am sure there are many others I am forgetting.

Starting with PEDs - was bad, highest profile of an epidemic in the sport


the Bronson Arroyo ball slap - pathetic, done out of frustration but Hrbek was a hero in Minnesota for pulling Ron Gant off the bag


walking across the mound against the A’s - that's not really a thing, Dallas Braden is just mentally ill


the HAH! Against the Rays - that was clever, don't see a thing wrong with it


the kissing the mirror picture - certainly not my style


the baseball with the note on it to the female fan - this possed me off, the other stuff could be viewed as part of his desire to win or off the field


out with a stripper while still married - afraid affairs are more pervasive than doping, not interested in their personal life




I am sure there are many others I am forgetting.

Geez bomber ... judge much?


I understand a baseball fan not liking cheating ... but you apparently have a dislike for him way beyond his cheating ... and I think you are judging him harshly.

I don't like the cheating and I have never liked Arod.  These are a few of the many things that contribute to my dislike for him.  There are many who will agree with you that I am judging him harshly.  I was responding to Louisiana who asked why I don't like him, I'm not wishing him any harm.

I look at him on TV or at a picture of him and I feel soiled.

I understand ... just think we don't know all the pieces to the man ... and what causes him to do such questionable things ... so I don't want to judge him personally as far as every little thing he did in life ... but I hate the cheating ... and he was well advised not to cheat, but chose to do it anyway ... but as far as his cheating on his wife, I heard somewhere that she was cheating on him also ... some of these people with so much money do a lot of things you and I would not do.

Mo, I am not saying whether he or his wife were at fault, or both.  I think of the public nature of his "indiscretion" and the effect on his kids.  But you are right, to lump his marital cheating in with this might be getting a bit too critical.  I had the same argument downstairs once, about Bill Clinton and how I couldn't vote for someone who couldn't even be trusted by his wife.  They said, they could separate the man from the candidate.

It's really hard ... separating the man from the player ... and indeed in separating a man from the candidate ... I think it might be even harder in the latter ... because to me integrity is much more important when someone is going to be President, than when someone is hitting a baseball.


Getting back to A-Rod ... he's an embarrassment to have in pinstripes at this point ... and I so wish we didn't have to deal with the circus that is going to be around when he is around ... I'm so for them paying him to stay away ... I'm wondering if they are trying first to get from underneath those special bonuses for hitting homeruns ... if they can get away from paying those, then maybe they would have a better shot at just paying him to stay away.

Paying him to stay away is not an option.  They can pay him and leave him on the bench or they can pay and DFA him so he could go and negotiate new terms with a rival.  No team can pay a guy to stay home.

Or, the Yankees can pay 4 or 5 guys to Kerriganize him in the parking lot.
