Orioles fan, who is not at all a jackwagon, turns his back for every A-Rod at bat

A lot of people dislike Alex Rodriguez because he draws attention to himself, thinks he’s more important than he is and doesn’t follow rules. Not at all like this dude:

This guy is probably a lot of fun to talk to at the office. I bet he has a lot of opinions and stuff.

I wonder if he pulled this stuff when Orioles shortstop Everth Cabrera, also a Biogenesis All-Star, came to bat last night. Or, for that matter, when Nelson Cruz did last year. Or Chris Davis or, well, you see how this goes.

UPDATE: Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post interviewed him. And, no, he doesn’t turn his back on Orioles PED guys. Why? Because A-Rod is “the worst.” Basically, he comes off about how you’d expect him to come off. Like an attention-seeking blowhard.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
