Here's a better linkDoing ESPN broadcasts it's pretty clear he will take to his grave a desperate wish that the trade to the Red Sox had gone through in the winter of '04. He has talked about getting blackout drunk or whatever the night MLB HQ vetoed the trade to the Sox.
Now he looks at Boston worshiping Papi, chanting his name, rallying around him when he's injured. ARod ended up with the Yankees... and Yankees fans HATE him anyway. Think about the reverse situation, where the FS1 set was outside the New Toilet tonight? Yankees fans can't stand him.
(Barstool link is dead.)As he explained on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take,” he decided to get a realllllllllly big buzz going to help drown away those sorrows.
“I was saddened by it. I went out one night, there’s this place called Life, and I just got toasted drunk that night. I threw up, I was so bummed,” said Rodriguez. “Anyways, I went back home and just dusted off and said, ‘let’s go, gotta go play ball.’ And of course the Yankee thing happened, and I think because of that, when I go to Fenway for the first time as a Yankee, I mean, come on. Nothing could be meaner or more cruel. I think that’s where the emotions started.”
