This Alex Rodriguez thing is going to get weird, pretty quick. In the case of Everyone vs. A Player, it seems that nobody can see his side of the story as easily as his own team and their fans.
But it can be said that nobody hates A-Rod as much as Yankees fans, except maybe baseball writers, but his team and manager will apparently come to his aid in the face of technically unprovoked hostility.
So here’s Joe Girardi screaming and swinging his fist in slow motion in response to his third baseman getting a spine-tickler from Ryan Dempster.
Good for Joe, being a professional, despite how much he may secretly want to just have a baseball team that plays baseball.
Then… the added bonus:
And here’s video of the incident in its entirety:

Jeremy Lin is really letting all that fame go to his head.

Some say the "kick in the face" is the "home run" of MMA fighting. Travis Browne hit a walkoff shot last night off the face of Alistair Overeem.
