Alex Rodriguez has come across as always being bigger than anything.
When he opted for free agency a few seasons ago, news broke during the World Series. He’s bigger than that.
When 13 other players were presented with evidence of their involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, they accepted their punishment.
A-Rod? He’ll fight it. He’s bigger than that. He has to overshadow everything.
He told us during his news conference that he’s “fighting for his life.”
Here’s A-Rod in his words:
He went full sympathy card on us when he went through a laundry list of injuries he’s had to battle.
We’re supposed to feel sorry for a guy that can’t admit his guilt?
Ryan Braun accepted his punishment. So did Nelson Cruz and Jhonny Peralta.
We’re supposed to believe he’s a fighter.
There’s nothing in his game to make me believe that now, at age 38, he’s changed.
It’s fitting the Yankees were beat up by the White Sox last night.
If karma goes around, maybe they won’t win another game until Rodriguez serves his suspension.
In my opinion, commish Bud Selig didn’t go far enough with the suspension.
Rodriguez needed a lifetime ban.
Everywhere he goes, it’ll be a media circus.
Baseball doesn’t need that. The Yankees don’t need that.
We need to be freed from the fraud that is Rodriguez.
What a dope.
