Tell em why you mad son?

“This is ridiculous,” Rodriguez is said to have shouted after Horowitz issued his ruling shortly before noon at MLB’s offices on Park Ave.

Rodriguez then pointed his finger at Manfred, who directed baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis clinic suspected of being a source of supply of illegal PEDs to ballplayers, and said “You know you’re full of s—!”

After walking out of the hearing, Rodriguez issued a statement through his spokesman.

“I am disgusted with this abusive process, designed to ensure that the player fails,” Rodriguez’s statement said. “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.”

Sounded like Tupac at the end of “Hit Em Up”, surprised he didn’t call out Chino XL.
