Tempers flare in Yankees win

You would think by the final score, a 13-3 blowout over the Orioles, that yesterday’s game up at Yankee Stadium was relatively stress-free. Not so. The Yankees lost both Alex Rodriguez and Joe Girardi to ejections in the fifth inning as they once again clashed with home plate umpire Marty Foster.

Rodriguez was thumbed after playing the top of the fifth inning and called Foster “unprofessional” in his postgame remarks. That was a word that Derek Jeter teetered on the edge of using but never actually did back on July 6, when Foster supposedly told Jeter he was out on a play at third base and did not actually need to be tagged with the baseball (Foster later denied saying this).

“I don’t know what his deal is with the Yankees,” Rodriguez said. “To
tell Jeter to get off the field and to throw me out without a warning
– I think in the heat of the moment, not arguing balls and strikes, I
think there should be a little room for error where you can actually
argue, take out your frustration and let the game go on.”

The ejection was A-Rod’s first since July 24, 2004 at Fenway Park, the day that he and Jason Varitek fought and conspired to launch a billion t-shirts and eBay listings.

I agree with A-Rod about the ump that ran him and Joe. I know he can’t say it, but I can, the umpires has been given the Yankees a hard way to go for a long time. I mean since 2003 it has gotten worse. I know they are human beings so I know they are jealous of the money the Yankee player make, that’s human nature. But they are paid quite well and have great benefits. The sports writers also have a grudge againist the yankees. The Yankees may spend more, but every contending team has players they have aquired through free agency. I watch a lot of baseball games, not only the yankees, if it is a close call and it may decide the game I can say without blinking, the Yankees will not get the call. The umps want to be the stars also, they want to be on sportscenter.
