"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Ain’t No Quitter

Over at the USA Today, Bob Nightengale talks to Alex Rodriguez:

“I know people think I’m nuts,” he tells USA TODAY Sports, in his first extensive interview since last season. “I know most people wouldn’t want the confrontation. Most people would say, ‘Get me out of here. Trade me. Do anything.’

“But I’m the (expletive) crazy man who goes, ‘I want to compete. I want to stay in New York. I refuse to quit.’

“Maybe it’s stupidity, I don’t know, but I’m wired to compete and give my best. I have a responsibility to be ready to play as soon as I can.”

What a drama. Like I've said before, I both want him to disappear, and I want him to come back and mash like it's 2009. He is an amazing player to watch when he's on a roll, but there is so much baggage that it's hard to root for the guy. I can't seem to stop paying attention, though. Ticking off the days until he comes back. Or doesn't. Kinda like Tiger in 2010 - couldn't look away.
