A-rod..its all about A-Rod again?

There is no reason to concentrate on A-Rod, and I am tired of all the fucking print, web, tv and god knows what over media types I have missed that concentrate on A-fucking-Rod. He is but one cog in the wheel known as the Yanks. SI, the NYT, a plethora of media types are focused on one man and his numbers.

Are they jealous of what he makes? Who isn't for christs sake? He makes more than the entire team payroll for the Marlins.

Are they jealous of his talent? God was good to the boy..lets not quibble here.

Everyone is going off about all the A-Rod shit. Fuck him. The team would win with or without him. There is a me in Team but me only takes you so far..it won't keep you warm at night..and pumping up your own ego is highly over-rated.

Lets keep some things in perspective..the Marlins have won a World Series in the recent past....the Yanks have not. Lets keep the focus on the team..not A-fucking-Rod. I hate when the media makes a mountain out of a molehill of bullshit.

If Pay-Rod looked like 40 miles of bad road(or played in St. Louis *coughbiascough*), there wouldn't be 1/10th the amount of press written in this schmuck, no matter how much he made. But, with his narcissistic attitude and paper-thin skin, he's easy bait for the media and the fans.

Because of what he makes, he will always be a conduit for the press and thats a fact B. But I for one, am tired of the wasted amount of space on him and frankly I don't read it and I tune it out on ESPN.

Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd were like rabid dogs on a bone today with this shit. Thank God KO was on between 2-3.

I was fixing a mess of chicken to bbq..but I can get the major stuff off his site on msnbc..my pads are on in a few..we are in first again you know..although lately it doesn't seem to mean shit in the nl west.

The jerkoff can't play 3rd base...can't wait for him to blow a big game in the playoffs defensively.

Still taking medication for bad nerves after Larry Luccino almost traded Manny for Arod a while back...

dusty said...

Well, sticking him at third was the Yanks fault, not A-rods. The hot corner takes a certain kinda of player, and A-rod isn't it. He isn't the god that somefolks paint him to be, but he isn't a jerkoff either..he is somewhere in the middle.

Al Swearengen said...

After how he slaped the ball out of the Sox first baseman's hand during the ALCS...I'm sticking with jerkoff

I had to refresh the page to see that you had posted something after the penis transplant article. Good thing.

As for anybody that plays for the yanks, fuck 'em. To play for the Yanks as a free agent requires narcissism and avarice. Why do people go there as free agents?

1. To get a bazillion dollars
2. To win a World Series because every other jerkoff went there for a bazillion dollars.

here here!!

S.R. sumed it up perfectly.

Dusty, make the trip to Boston, it's worth it! Once the boys are a little older, I'll be taking them to Dodger stadium and Anaheim...great way to plan a vacation, around some games!

Al, I lived in Boston, specifically IN the Fenway..I could hear the crack of the bat and the yelling of the fans..it was awesome..best five years of my life :)
