A-Rod: Ungrateful Bastard
NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez told the New York Yankees he won’t play in the inaugural World Baseball Classic, just two days after saying he was leaning toward being on the Dominican Republic’s team.
Baseball officials said at last week’s winter meetings that Rodriguez, who last month won his second AL MVP award, had agreed to play in tournament but had not decided whether he wanted to play for the United States or the Dominican Republic. The third baseman was born in New York but his parents are Dominican.
“When faced with the decision to choose between my country, the United States of America, and my Dominican heritage, I decided I will not dishonor either,” Rodriguez was quoted as saying in Friday’s editions of the New York Post.
But of course his decision does dishonor the United States, and is a betrayal of everything it has given to the Rodriguez family. My advice (and my hope) is for A-Rod to pack his bags and take his ungrateful arse and move to the glorious Dominican Republic which he loves so much. His parents can become dirt farmers, and he can play baseball in open sewers with a rock for a ball and a broken broomstick for a bat.
What a disloyal and ungrateful bastard.
