Just this afternoon, I shared my displeasure on the A-Rod 10 RBI Ball issue.
Now, this evening, I’ve read a report that says the following:
The New York Yankees’ All-Star third baseman was criticized on talk radio all afternoon for trying to cash in on his big game as quickly as possible.
“That to me is one of the most special nights of my career,” Rodriguez said. “I’m not here to capitalize on any game or season, I’m here to play baseball.”
Rodriguez said he never told the company it could put the balls up for sale, and he got upset when he was told about it before Friday night’s game against Toronto.
“When someone does something without my consent and my permission, to me it’s the wrong thing to do,” he said. “Because of that, I’ve taken immediate action.”
Rodriguez said he did not plan to pursue legal action against the company. He thinks cutting off ties will send a strong enough message.
“From this point forward,” Rodriguez said, “there is no Arod Authenticated.”
Attaboy Alex. It’s the best play that you’ve made so far this season. Thank you.
