What happen the other night with Arod and Britton?

Recommended Posts

Roch at MASN.com said that Arod took 17 minutes to step to the plate vs Britton?

Please tell me what happened.

A-Rod took 17 minutes to get a bat, Stretch, Practice Swing and Stroll to the Batter's Box.

It was sarcasm. A-Rod was a PH but literally took 60-90 seconds to get into the box after he was announced to pitch.

It was really "much ado about nothing". A-roid came up as a pinch-hitter and maybe took a few more seconds than he should (he'll probably get a reprimand from MLB under the current "PACE OF PLAY" rules). Did he take 17 minutes? No, that was just sarcasm from Thorne/Palmer. Did he he seem a bit slow getting to the plate as a pinch-hitter--hell yes. Britton got him out and sent his cheating A** back to the bench.

Melewski asked Britton what he thought of facing ARod with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and the first thing Britton said was, "well, he took forever to get in the batter's box."

I believe Buck make note of it in his post game talk about wondering why it took so long, he didnt know what they were doing.

Zach should have started schooing imaginary bugs. Toeing the mound and stepping off. Asking for a new ball. And then buzzed the tower.

Truly brilliant response. That would have been a classic for the ages.
