The Media: Are They Ganging Up On A-Rod?

Sept. 9, 1984: In preparation for becoming a future baseball star, 9-year-old Alex Rodriguez spends all day practicing his fielding of grounders, pop-ups, and reporters' questions.

Dammit, that's funny stuff.

I guess they planned this simultaneous deluge of A-Rod jokes to emulate how asinine and harsh the real media is towards him. Personally, the more the press and Yankee fans get on A-Rod, the more I like the guy. He goes out and plays hard every day and wants to win a championship, and as a bonus he actually CARES about what you think about him. The fact that he's the most maligned and harassed player in baseball, while SF fans still unconditionally love Bonds, illustrates everything that's wrong with this sport, and pro sports in general.
