Yeah, as much as I dislike A-Rod, what Dempster did was ridiculous and really shouldn't have been tolerated. It's unfortunate that now some people will look at A-Rod with sympathy and respect for the way he handled the situation - later hitting a huge homerun.

The way you beat these guys in on the scoreboard, not with beanballs.

LOL gotta love this Girardi gets thrown

I can't believe they did not throw Dempster

Dempster is a player's rep for the union. He knows the rules and procedures pertaining to suspensions and a player's right to appeal. Popping Rodriguez last night was flat out wrong and was intentional. NY can't afford to lose a player now through an ejection/suspension for getting involved in a beanball war. The teams will meet again.

In the meantime, Rodriguez retaliated in the best way possible. He clubbed a pretty powerful HR to dead CF and did a great Ortiz imitation when he touched home plate. Sometimes a BS move like Dempster pulled can ignite a team like the Yankees.

This. I was listening to MLB Radio this AM, and they were saying the same. It made people have sympathy for ARoid in that situation, and well, that's just not right.

I hate to say this, because I don't consider ARoid class, but he did handle it the right way. Even his post game comments. They asked if Dempster should be suspended for what he did, and ARoid said "I'm the last guy you should ask about suspensions". He did/said all the right things.

To be perfectly honest he sounded a bit humbled in his post conference. Maybe he is learning to shut the heck up and just play ball

I don't have a problem with them hitting AROD. I don't have a problem with every opposing team hitting AROD from here on out. It's not just about the PEDs it's about all of the other stuff involved with it. That being said, the Red Sox and their fans are ridiculously hypocritical. Hello, you wouldn't have finally gotten another WS victory (and then another) if it wasn't for Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz and probably others as well. Their self awareness is comical. Red Sox and Red Sox fans, you're the same as the Yankees. Don't hate them for things that you emulate.

But the Mitchell report didn't have the names of any Red Sox players. :rolleyes:

What a classless team. Didn't their bullpen hit another 3 Yankees?

I hate A-Rod as much as the next guy, but all they've done is spun the entire thing into a victimization.

Sure, what a loser. Arod has made more money than that kid will see in 10 lifetimes.
