I hope A-Rod saw that grtty David Ecklstein-like Dustin Pedroia try to hit the ball out of Victor Martinez's hand to help his team win. A-Rod needs to do the little things like that more. Or he could try and distract fielders while running the bases. Why can' t he be as gritty as Dustin Pedroia? Nomaas.org has a slow motion video of this classic example of trying to win.
Boston lost again but I`m sure thoise gritty underdogs will find a way to come back.
