Still upset about the incident last month when Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez walked across the mound when going back to the dugout, A’s left-hander Dallas Braden told CSNBayArea.com that there could be repercussions when the teams play again in July.
Braden hinted that those repercussions could include a fight, and he admitted he isn’t a fan of A-Rod.
"(A-Rod has a) lack of respect for the game or those playing it. … He’s just an individualistic player," Braden said.
Rodriguez tried to take the high road Friday night when asked to respond to Braden’s latest comments.
"I think Major League Baseball reads the same articles as we do," Rodriguez told reporters. "Now, look, I really don’t want to extend his extra 15 minutes of fame.
"Look, it is tempting to sit back here and go back and forth with the media for the next three months, but I’m not going to do that."
