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.

On Monday, Nationals pitcher Joe Ross became one of four players to opt out of the 2020 season due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, Joe’s brother Tyson Ross opted out of the 2020 season as well, per Jon Heyman.

Ross, 33, is currently a free agent. He racked up 35 1/3 disappointing innings for the Tigers last year, posting a 6.11 ERA with 25 strikeouts and 18 walks.

Mike Leake, Ryan Zimmerman, and Ian Desmond are the three other players to have opted out of the 2020 season thus far. None of these players are considered “high risk,” so they are forgoing their salaries and service time.
