A-rod loses more respect

''I wasn't sure that was allowed,'' outfielder Johnny Damon said. ''If it is, maybe we'll keep on doing it.''


Doesn't sound like a guy who's seen this sort of thing on a regular basis to me. And I'd be willing to bet that he's been playing baseball longer than anyone in this thread and has no Blue Jays bias in all of this.

like others have said before... plunk him next time you see him. story over.


Sick burn. :-D [/b]

Who is being patronizing in this thread, home boy?

Still a little bit touchy about that comment are you? It was true, though.

And yes...what I said in those two instances are a result of the utter frustration from the absolute ignorance shown by some people in this thread.

I heard Cole Hamels did it and framed A-Rod because he's that good at disguise.

according to published reports it was cole hamels who walked up behind lincoln and in arod's voice yelled "ha!" or "mine!" (no one is quite sure)... then just when lincoln was turning around to see if it was his body guard... he shot him. sorry no link.
