- Arod slapping a ball
- Andy phillips making a ridiculous stupid slide into second with the intent of cleating someone (if you dont believe this you are just naive)
- "Sending a message" on the first batter in ST
- Don zimmer charging the mound
- George suspended for connections with the mob
- Re-firing a manager 5 times
- Tampering charges
That list is clearly not dominated by two people but the organization as a whole. From the front office to the players, its all there. Hank was basically told to shut up when he was commenting on Johan Santana. Nothing was made official but he was obviously out of line. This is the quickest link I could find...
I'll retract my statement as the yankees being the most classless organization in all of sports because that was probably too bold. But I dont think you can deny the fact that the yankees walk around with less class than most organizations...
"What you saw today was the definition of a dirty play," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "There's no room for that in our game. It's contemptible, it's wrong, it's borderline criminal. And I cannot believe they did that."
"It was a dirty play," B.J. Upton said. "It was just flat out dirty, period."
"There's no room in baseball for that kind of stuff," Rays closer Troy Percival said. "Ty Cobb's been gone a long time."

If a catcher doesn't want to get hit, then get off the plate.
