I lost respect for ARod on the field.
I never judged him really for his personal life. I have not held it against him that he can no longer hit a fastball.
However, his playoff antics were over the line. He gets paid a fortune to play and that includes when he is just sitting in the dugout during a game. While he was benched his thoughts during a very important game was to get phone numbers from hot chicks in the stands.
He could have been talking to the younger players, maybe studying some charts to help another player. He could have been on the rail trying to pick something up that could help. But no, his focus was getting laid. Too bad we can't just dump him. Girardi has to suck up to him and announce that he and Alex still get along just fine that he looks forward to working with him.
Makes me want to puke.
