Making $25 million a year has never been so rough

ESPN.com: “Resident Anti-Hero – Alex Rodriguez has become Public Enemy No. 1 in the Bronx.”

Baseball Tonight’s Steve Phillips: “Yankees Should Trade A-Rod”

The New York Times: “The idea that the Yankees must trade Alex Rodriguez is growing louder on television, talk radio, Internet chats and some newspaper columns. But there is one problem: For all of his struggles lately, Rodriguez is staying put.”

The New York Times: “Rodriguez is all smiles as his mistakes mount.”

New York Post: “Rodgriguez Soap Opera Wearing Down Yanks.”

New York Post: “On the Rod to Nowhere.”

New York Post: “Rodriguez Pulling Bombers Down to his Level.”

The poor guy is getting so beat up, even former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani is pleading for a little mercy: “I really think Yankee fans have to change their whole attitude about this. It doesn’t make any sense to me to be booing A-Rod when you want him to perform. We want him to succeed, not to fail. The idea of booing him every time he makes an out is kind of silly.”

It almost makes you feel bad for the guy. Almost, but not quite.

    A-Rod is the anti Big Papi. It’s hilarious to watch such a spoiled, and egocentric, athlete struggle on the world biggest stage. I can’t remember another example of a superstar being disliked by the media, fans, and fellow ballplayers. It seems everyone is reveling in his misery and he’s too arrogant to illicit any sympathy…it’s only going to get worse and the Yanks might be forced to trade him in the off-season. In fact, considering the Rangers are paying like 8-9 million of his contract it’s not inconceivable that there will be a lot of interested parties.
