Just a very bad choice of words and analogy from Peter Gammons. I understand what he was trying to say, but you just can’t describe it in that way.
He went on the Mike Lupica show and while trying to explain what is going on with A-Rod he said this.
I have a lot of respect for Gammons and I am sure in hindsight he wished he would have worded his thoughts a little differently.
A-Rod is a lot of things, but he doesn’t deserve to be in the same breath as those monsters. Gammons has apologized.
@craigcalcaterra It was a stupid, poorly worded comp of blowing up a process.Alex would never hurt a human . I hope I haven't hurt him
