Apparently there was some outrage in New York yesterday after Yankee fans learned that Alex Rodriguez taped a message to be played at Fenway after Manny Ramirez hits his 500th career home run.
"Manny, I'm going to keep this short because I'm probably getting booed,” A-Rod says in the clip. “Congratulations and many more."
The New York Daily News’ Mark Feinsand reports the Red Sox approached the Yankees about Rodriguez taping some form of congratulations. I don’t get it. He’ll obviously get booed. Why would the team want to mar the moment by sparking a moment of dislike in the fan base? Congrats, Manny. Now, watch as we make the crowd jeer in this great moment of your profession.
It could be worse, I guess. They could show the video they made to compel Roger Clemens to return to Boston some years back. That, though, has apparently gone the way of the Rams walkthrough tape.
