(Continued)

The situation has gotten way out of hand. Alex Rodriguez is a cheat and a scoundrel who despite his prodigious baseball accomplishments will need a ticket if he expects to get into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, but he’s not Hitler or Stalin or Pol Pot.

Rodriguez is a human being who plays a game and who could get seriously hurt by a thrown ball or even by a crazed fan with a weapon. Old Tertullian was right. “The perversity of it!”
