A-Rod doesn't want to extend Dallas Braden's "15 minutes of fame"

From the “In Case You Missed It” file, on Friday Alex Rodriguez responded to Dallas Braden’s interview with CSN’s Mychael Urban from earlier this week. He told reporters, via ESPNNewYork.com:

“I think Major League Baseball reads the same articles as we do,”
Rodriguez said. “Now, look, I really don’t want to extend his extra 15
minutes of fame.”

I understand that people disagree on whether Rodriguez broke an unwritten rule, but I gotta say, I really love his answer here. Not only is he absolutely right, but he takes a considerable dig at Braden at the same time. Also, watching this interview between Braden and Urban again, I can’t help but feel how contrived and silly it all is. Either way, I assure you that MLB is taking it very seriously.
