This makes me like ARod a lot more
I never really disliked ARod other than for the fact that he was a tool who cared too much about what others thought of him, which I, along with others, lambasted him for many-a-season, although perhaps unfairly; there is, after all, an absurd amount of pressure associated with a $250 million contract. Rodriguez, without a doubt, is the best player in the game today. He is a five-tool player at a premium defensive position (either 3rd base or SS, although it would be difficult for him to make the transition back). And now he finally seems to stop listening to everyone else and just worrying about himself. The less he talks to Scott Boras, the better.
