Campaign: No A-Rod

By

I am not the only one.
I am not the only one who has said the following words:
“If the Boston Red Sox organization decides to take A-Rod over Mike Lowell, I will seriously consider not being a Red Sox fan.”
Yes, I would have taken the Alex Rodriguez of before. The A-Rod before “the slap.” Before the “mine” incident. A-Rod before all of this was a superior player — and quite frankly he still is, but would I want him on this team? HELL NO!
I would turn my back on him at the plate every time he batted. I would buy all of the New York Yankees shirts that would make to make fun of him. I would lose faith in all that is holy in baseball.
Why would a team that just won two championships in four years even consider him when the player that would be replaced in all of this would be Mike Lowell. He just won the MVP, he is an incredible clubhouse guy, he batted .324 and drove in 120 RBIs carrying this team on his back during the season. He won over any Red Sox fan who doubted getting him in the first place. He, Mike Lowell, is every thing Red Sox Nation believes in. A hard working guy who grinds everything out, leaves everything out on the field, and plays every day like his last.
THIS IS NOT ALEX RODRIGUEZ AND A-ROD IS CERTAINLY NOT A WINNER.
Mike Lowell has two World Series rings while Alex Rodriguez has none. Mike Lowell has a World Series MVP while Alex Rodriguez still cannot figure out that after the regular season ends and October baseball comes around that it is not spring training all over again.
I am incredibly serious when I say that I would turn my back on this ownership, root for another team, believe in a team that wants to win the World Series and not care about how much money they make. I certainly do not want a clubhouse cancer either. A-Rod knows nothing but how to lose, knows nothing of winning when it matters most. If he ever stepped foot in the Red Sox clubhouse with a Red Sox jersey on now, well, I would seriously consider rooting for another team so much that it would end up killing me.
I am officially starting here on this site right now the Campaign for No A-Rod in Boston and the re-signing of Mike Lowell.
Who is with me?
