A-Rod Storms From Hearing With Fake Outrage

This guy really takes the cake. Alex Rodriguez "stormed" out of his juicer grievance hearing in New York today, full of phony outrage in what is—in our humble opinion—a planned stunt by his handlers. After the arbitrator refused to force Bud Selig to directly appear at the hearing, A-Fraud slammed his hand on the table, pointed at MLB COO Rob Manfred and said, "This is f------ bull----!" and stormed out of the room. "This is ridiculous", cried The Fraudulent One in a more tempered, G-rated tirade. Conveniently, a written statement was available immediately after The Centaur left the building. Here's the text: "I am disgusted with this abusive process, designed to ensure that the player fails. I have sat through 10 days of testimony by felons and liars, sitting quietly through every minute, trying to respect the league and the process. This morning, after Bud Selig refused to come in and testify about his rationale for the unprecedented and totally baseless punishment he hit me with, the arbitrator selected by MLB and the players' association refused to order Selig to come in and face me. The absurdity and injustice just became too much. I walked out and will not participate any further in this farce." Oh, the humanity!
