With the crazy last couple of weeks that Alex Rodriguez has had on the field and in the media, it was time to turn to one of the best to make some sense out of everything that has gone down. Travis Rodgers, from Yahoo! Sports Radio joined Chad on Flight 750 Tuesday to talk about everything that has happened with ARod as well as the rest of the sports world.Rodgers first talked about the ugly display of sportsmanship from Ryan Dempster over the weekend.
“Ryan Dempster managed to do something that I think most of us would have thought was impossible and that was to kind of make us feel bad for ARod for a little bit. We all know that ARod’s an idiot. We all know that he’s empty, inauthentic and wooden and there’s nothing likeable about the guy. I also think we all kind of come out on the same point that as much as we all hate him, he’s entitled to the same process as everybody else.”
Rodgers also talked about what makes ARod such a difficult man to root for.
“Remember when he got accused of ratting out Ryan Braun and Francisco Cervelli, the guy that’s on his team. ARod was standing in front of the media and saying ‘I didn’t do it to Ryan Braun. I spoke to Cervelli earlier today – He called his own teammate by his last name, which is just bizarre to me. It’s almost like he didn’t even know who the guy was. It was so second-hand and off-putting.”
And then Rodgers transitioned into the case of Von Miller and his 6-game suspension for using illegal drugs and tampering with his urine sample.
“That’s great. Anybody that brings out a rubber phallus to try to beat a drug inspector is pretty awesome in my book.”
Take a listen to the great interview with Rodgers and be sure to check him out on Yahoo! Sports Radio weekdays from 9:00am to 11:00am.
