60 Minutes Sunday and again Alex Rodriguez is the center of attention on a national scale. The thing I think that drives people crazy about A-rod is every answer/interview seems to be straight from a public relations company’s letterhead.

When asked if he is speaking with Scott Boras…..not right now. Come on, I love ya Alex but you mean to tell me you sign a potentially $300 Million dollar deal, will pay the man approx. $15 million and you are not going to talk to him once about it. There are reports you are not firing him and you say in the papers, he has built to much trust up to get rid of him for one mistake. What a loyal, great man you are, you make Yankee fans/Yankee front office happy as it seems you negotiated everything and told Boras to shove it. You really F’d Scott Boras and now you are not even talking anymore. Well I can tell you what, that was the easiest 15 million Boras made in his life, congrats for really showing him.

You don’t think we realize you are doing the PR spin. It is much better to blame the dirty sneaky agent and have him take all the blame for how everything was handled this off-season. Hey A-rod for 15 million you can blame me for the affair, the string of no-shows in the playoffs and global warming for all I care.

Katie Couric gets into asking about steroids and have you ever done it, instead of just saying no, I have never done any performance enhancing drugs and leaving it at that, you go on this rant that I have never felt at a disadvantage on the baseball field because of my talent and how hard I work.. WHAT…I can see every player in baseball just look at that TV and shake there heads. Goes right back to 2 years ago when you said nobody works like me, when other guys are taking there kids to school, I am going to be in the batting cage or running up steps like Rocky, climbing Mount Everest for cardio blah, blah, blah. He just knows how to sound like he works harder and has more talent then everyone else. Do people feel he is the most talented player of this generation, yes, but we should not have to hear it from your mouth.

The only part of the A-rod piece I was like okay that was the way to go, was when asked why he has struggled in last few Octobers. He paused looked at Katie and said flat out I stunk. That was a perfect answer, instead of saying teams do not want me to beat them or some Bull Durham type cliche answer, he just said I stunk, perfect.

Overall I am glad A-rod is back and I can not wait to see the March to break Bonds record. You can say what you want about A-rod, but you can sign him up for being there to play every single game and put up .280 plus Avg, 30 plus HR, 100 plus RBI, 100 plus runs and throw in 10-20 steals. He is the best player in the game, I just wish he would run 5 extra miles or take 100 more swings then talk to the media about how hard he works and how much talent he has.
