The manager of the New York Yankees, Joe Girardi has accused Boston Red Sox pitcher Brad Penny of plunking Alex Rodriguez on purpose. Girardi went before the press and offered copious details to prove his case that Penny threw at billionnaire A-Rod in a deliberate act of class warfare.
The Yankee Skipper described every step in the pitcher's assault on his star palyer who has not been shining much since his return fron steroid accusations and a hip injury typical of testosterone abusers:
" Penny reared back, took aim and hit that cheating bastard with all of his might. just imagine if you were the manager of a team like the Yankees who hadn't won a World series since 2000 and the superstar that you pay billions to destroys your team's reputation and morale by confessing that he is a great big lying cheater and instead of you getting a chance to slam him...a Red Sux pitcher gets the pleasure you have been wishing for for months..."
