I tried to blog about the whole A-Rod lapdance thing yesterday, but the system was down. Let me just say that I can’t think of single reason except venality for the NY Post to run that litany of A-Rod’s appearances in strip clubs. Except, of course, to tittilate. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it is what it is.
This story on Yahoo, which I think comes from Reuters because it is unattributed (though I could be wrong about that), seems to be making the argument that TO shouldn’t get his signing bonus for skipping voluntary workouts. Emphasis on Voluntary.
The reporter seems to know this. Other players who skipped the Voluntary workouts are also listed, though there may be a finger wagging there, too.
I like to think that if they actually had to kill trees to print this stuffÂ someone would try to save the planet, at least a little.
But I’m an optimist.
In the meantime, try to avoid the crap.
