…though perhaps I shouldn’t hold my breath.  CBS New York reports the organization Hispanics Across America have launched a website in defense of Alex Rodriguez, supportarod13.com, that includes a solicitation for donations.  Keep in mind, Rodriguez has earned more than $350 million in baseball salary during his career, but presumably his overhead costs are little bit higher than yours or mine.

Still, if the notion of fans outraged by MLB’s persecution of A-Rod dipping into their own pockets strikes you as distasteful, for once, we ought to give the embattled third baseman some credit where due. He could’ve opted to sell autographed syringes to the highest bidder, yet chose not to.
