His latest on-field antic involved shouting at Toronto's third baseman just as he was about to catch a fly ball last night, causing him to miss the catch. Many will remember him from the ALCS against Boston a few years ago, when he slapped at the glove of a Red Sox player like a little woman in order to try and knock the ball lose, an obvious and easy out call for the umpires for interfierence.
Replays showed Rodriguez shouting something, and Clark backed off at the last second. McDonald was only a few steps behind Clark, but couldn't make the catch and ball dropped for an RBI single.
"I don't know what my intention was," Rodriguez said. "I didn't say, 'I got it' or anything like that."
Clark claimed Rodriguez called for the ball.
Now he has to resort to bush league tactics to try and get a win for his team? How pathetic. Go home, Stray-Rod...You need to spend less time out with hookers at strip clubs, and more time focusing on the game. Stray-Rod made headlines in the NY Post early this week for this little escapade:
The guy is a mess. Couldn't happen to a better guy, though, if you ask me. I hope he never wins a ring.
