• Slap Play In WCA Playbook?

    Posted by on September 15th, 2008 · Comments (6)

    We know that Alex Rodriguez and Doug Mientkiewicz were High School teammates, and best buddies, at Westminster Christian Academy. Well, now, we see that A-Rod and Minky studied from the same playbook back at school.

    I’m guessing that Mientkiewicz was a better student than Rodriguez…because he actually got away with his slap-play.

    Hat tip to Peter Abraham.

      To be honest, I was a bit surprised when Rodriguez was called out on that play.

      In that context, why Rico wasn’t called out for interference is beyond me. I’d have a hard time believing that none of those umpires saw the 2004 ALCS.

      And had he been ruled safe, I wonder if he’d have his legions of haters right now.

      Of course! He’s unsure if his hate is “[because] I’m good-looking, I’m biracial, I make the most money, I play on the most popular team …”

      None of that would change 😀

      They already hated him for who knows what obscure reasons.
