The A-Rod supporters are laying it on a tad thick

Oct 1, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

Alex Rodriguez

From outside the A-Rod hearing, Day Two:

Rodriguez arrived in a black SUV with lawyer Joseph Tacopina at approximately 9:30 a.m. ET. He thanked the supporters in Spanish before heading inside. The supporters held signs that read “Randy Levine is the Devil” and “No Justice No Peace.”

I feel like A-Rod got a bum deal and that his suspension is too severe. But really, I’m gonna save my “you are the devil” signs for people who actually work evil in ways that matter to the public and my “No Justice No Peace” signs for injustice that actually imperils the peace.

    Depending on how I wake up, I either refer to Arod as Nelson Mandela or Joe Stalin. Today felt more like a Mandela day. I am uncertain as the to infernal status of Randy Levine however.

      That’s a pretty big insult to Nelson Mandela.

        Lucifer might have a problem with it too!

      You know who else didn’t like absurd hyperbole? Nazis.

        A-Rod’s lawyer didn’t attach a copy of his TPS report to the written appeal.

      Wait, are they sending Arod to a FEMA death camp?

      • Old Gator - Oct 1, 2013 at 11:01 PM

        I thought that Obamacare ran the death camp. Well, Sara Palin sad so, so it must be true. Right?

      A Rod as RuPaul sounds closer.

    I guess with NYC baseball season over and NYC football season stillborn, there just isn’t anything to do around here.

      Time to get jacked up for the Nets’ title run!

    The A-Rod supporters – all 13 of them- should STFU!

    • bigharold - Oct 1, 2013 at 7:09 PM

      Free A-Rod Now!

      “No Justice No Peace.”!!!

      • proudlycanadian - Oct 1, 2013 at 7:59 PM

        I have one problem with the “Free A-Rod Now” slogan, Harold. He is free although seems to have made a few bad decisions.

    Nice suit and tie.

    “Randy Levine is the devil”? One of A-Rod’s supporters is Larry Lucchino?

    • rbj1 - Oct 1, 2013 at 4:52 PM

      Or an average, random Yankee fan.

    • ctony1216 - Oct 1, 2013 at 6:51 PM

      I bet the Yankees’ office Christmas party will be a little awkward this year.

      Maybe Oprah can get A-Rod and Randy together on her show — get the healing process started.

    I just assumed Calacterra was there in a “Not a Monster” sandwich board. Is that not accurate?

  8. happytwinsfan - Oct 1, 2013 at 5:08 PM

    for the sake of baseball, i hate to say this, but this isn’t half as entertaining as the aaron hernandez stuff.

  9. bills399 - Oct 1, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    keep supporting the guilty.

    Attorney Pineapple Taco? You really can’t make this s#it up.

  11. jdillydawg - Oct 1, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    This case makes the Travyvon Martin thing look tame. This country’s future lies in the hands of the jury who will decide the fate of A-Rod. If they don’t find him innocent, we can pretty much expect Armageddon to follow. The world will come to an end. MLB will be exposed as Lucifer himself and we will all burn in Hell.

    Or we could all just be eating peanuts on opening day next year like we do every year.

    wonder what the average IQ level the “no justice no peace” crowd owns. I do know what they don’t own chanting that during work hours…..a job.

    F@#K A-Roid.

    • brooklynboy48 - Oct 1, 2013 at 10:57 PM

      joestemme, THAT’S WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY! thanks for saving me the trouble.

    He got a raw deal? He admitted to use and said he was done with it when he played for Texas in his little sweater vest and frosted tips. Then he gets caught in this scandal, skirting the testing program. Paying people off, recruiting others to cheat. Hindering the investigation. He got what he deserved. Pete Rose bet on his team, and got a lifetime ban. And you think a 211 game suspension is a “raw deal”?

    old gator is clueless and stuck in 2008.
