Alex Rodriguez accomplished feats no one could think could ever be done, but not for the reasons you may think.
A-Rod, one of the most complete and talented players in baseball history, has supplanted the reviled Barry Bonds as the most hated Major League player of the modern era. Who would have thunk it???
Long seen as a “fake” and a “prima donna,” multimillionaire he lusted for fan adoration and respect like his current teammate Derek Jeter for the New York Yankees. A-Rod has only managed to draw the fans’ ire and revulsion for his glaring lack of production in crunch time. Now, it’s for him being the main cog in the Biogenesis scandal, which has swept baseball in recent months.
Also seen as a joke is baseball Commissioner Bud Selig’s feet dragging in lowering the hammer on a man who everyone believes cheated the game in order to get an obscene $200 million contract from the Yankees.
Look at some of the funniest Twitter reactions to Alex Rodriguez’s supposed suspension from baseball.
