Many baseball fans hate Alex Rodriguez. It’s been that way for awhile now, but A-Rod hate is no doubt at an all-time high after his latest shenanigans. A-Fraud has of course sued MLB and its players’ union, which has really turned up the heat on him. Many players have bashed him over the past couple of weeks, but no one has attached their name to a quote until now.
Check out what Boston Red Sox star Jonny Gomes had to say on baseball’s dark cloud:
“He does steroids or whatever, it sucks. He does this or that, it sucks. He’s always in the news, it sucks. But this is the players’ union he’s going against. It’s all of us. Not a real good idea… I think what he had going on is pretty individual. He did it. It was his decision, his suspension. But I don’t think it’s really a good idea to go after our union. Down to my [expletive] kids, down to the benefits we have, down to our retirement fund, the union makes our lives better. We pay dues to the union for our rights.”
Translation – A-Rod, you suck.
Gomes is upset for the same reasons as many of us, but he’s probably most upset about the fact that player dues go towards defending the union in the event of a lawsuit against it. So in a way, A-Roid’s actions are truly costing his fellow players.
Just how much longer Rodriguez will remain a ‘fellow player’ is anyone’s guess at this point. No one wants him back. Not the fans, not the players and certainly not the league. Will the egotistical cheater finally swallow his pride and just go away? I highly doubt it. It just doesn’t seem like an A-Rod type of move.
