Alex Rodriguez is a tremendously talented baseball player, but he's also a jackass. After his limp-wristed maneuver during the 2004 ALCS, he demonstrated this again last night. Eliminated during a play at second base, A-Rod came out of his slide and leaned hard into Dustin Pedroia with his elbow. A hard slide into second base is fine, but this bush post-slide gyration went well beyond that.
Mrs. N4N and yours truly were in complete agreement that Curt Schilling should -- and will -- send Mr. Rodriguez a little message tonight.
