A Rod is a juicer and a jerk

When I awoke yesterday morning I was amused to find a story and accompanying video of the shenanigans between Oakland A’s Pitcher, Dallas Braden and public enemy number one, Alex Rodriguez. To summarize, Arod had gone first to third on a foul ball off the bat of Robinson Cano. As he returned to first, he ran right across the mound, Dallas Braden’s mound. To say Braden took exception to this breach of baseball etiquette would be a mild understatement. Actually, he went haywire. More like insane.  While I think Braden went overboard defending his turf it was Arod’s response that made me stop and think. Basically, he said “I’ve never heard of that in my career.”  So he is claiming that he didn’t know any better. It sounded oddly familiar. 

Three years ago, Rodriguez had a similar response when it came to his actions when running the base paths he called off a Blue Jays infielder, Howie Clark on a pop-up. Clark thought it was a teammate and let the ball drop. Again, Arod cited he didn’t know this wasn’t acceptable.  It seems to me that as someone who was been in the majors for 16 years, he should have a better grasp on proper etiquette, but then again the idea of using ignorance as an acceptable defense also translates to other areas of his life.

A few other things Arod didn’t know were wrong so it must be ok:

  1. Using Steroids
  2. Lying about using steroids
  3. Having purple lips
  4. Saying things like, "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."
  5. Using prostitutes.
  6. Being born in the USA and wanting to play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic
  7. Sticking his dick in the Material Girl while he was still married.
  8. Having a portrait of himself as a centaur painted
  9. Hanging said painting over his bed
  10. Thinking the prostitute he dated, Joslyn Noel Morse, was actually a woman.

It might be a good idea for Alex to hire a personal assistant who could give him a heads up on the stuff most other people realize are wrong.
