The people have spoken

Based on your unconditional love of Alex Rodriguez, perhaps he will stay in New York. It’s hard to get the kind of support our poll has for him. It’s a landslide.

Here’s my question, if a player from another team, say Jason Varitek, distracted Rodriguez and it cost the Yankees three runs, would you still think it was a clean play?

I’ll admit, at first I thought it was bush. But the more I think about it, it’s really not. If it’s OK to talk trash to the free throw shooter in basketball or wave your arms at the placekicker lining up for an extra point, when why can’t you yell at an infielder? Why is baseball any different?

You have to admit, however, it is amazing that it’s always Alex who finds himself in the middle of these things.
