Alex Rodriguez is one of the most disliked professional athletes on the face of the planet. Some players get a bad rap, while others deserve all of the negative attention from the media and the fans. While at times, I have felt as if some people were actually too harsh on Rodriguez for doing or saying the same things that many other athletes do, I am ready to say that Rodriguez is one of the most despicable athletes ever to play any game on any playing surface.
Simply out, if A-Rod knew what was best for him and his team, he would place a self imposed gag order on himself while the New York Yankees continue to hold him out of their 2012 MLB Playoffs lineup.
Of course, that would imply that Rodriguez gave a crap about any of his teammates, or about anyone besides himself, so I guess we can rule out that possibility right off the bat.
