The Yankees and Red Sox are playing on Thursday for the first time since Ryan Dempster took it upon himself to punish Alex Rodriguez for his role in Biogenesis scandal. There has not been any kind of retaliation or other bad blood (so far), but A-Rod continues to be a goof:

You can't really see the faceplant from that angle, but you can definitely see the "draw me like one of your French girls" pose after he makes it to second base. The uncomfortably long zoom-in on his face pulls it all together.

People don't like him, but baseball will be less entertaining once Rodriguez is gone. I'm sure of that.
