In response to ampoule's comment:
This is the player that was a whisker away from playing for us if it wasn't nullified by the commisioner.
Yet, the fans here all bad mouth him. This, in my opinion, is the essence of the fickleness.
Oh, give me a break!
Arod has become the charicature of a spoiled, overpaid athlete, whether he's using PED's, dating Madonna, or trying to pick up girls during a playoff game. And the fact that the Sox once coveted him doesn't excuse him from being ridiculed.
The fact is, the Y's signed him to a long-term high-$$ contract in an effort to make a run at the WS during his productive years of the contract and now they're living with the downside of that contract.
What the Y's didn't see coming was that Arod would make his life the punch line of multiple jokes.
What is worse is that Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner didn't want to resign him. They were quite happy about him leaving and then Fat Hank entered the picture. Please note that Fat Hank is not even allowed near the hotdog stands in Y.S. anymore.
