Well, not really. But regardless of how it plays out, that's what most people will think. Everybody seems to just HATE this guy. Yesterday, Alex Rodriguez spoke openly about his decision to play for America in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, mostly because, well, he was born here. He didn't want to upset the Dominicans, but yet, somehow will most likely do just that. Because that's what he does. A-Rod speaks or smiles or shows up some place and people yell at him. It's pretty amazing that this guy—arguably the best player in the game—just pisses people off so much. I, for one, get a little annoyed by his four-times-daily teeth flossing. That's why I hate him.
