Note To Dallas Braden: Just Shut Up!

Lucas WeickCorrespondent IMay 7, 2010

Dallas Braden has continued to rip A-Rod for running across the mound in Oakland only about three weeks ago. Here are some of his recent comments;

"There are things that are going to have to happen," Braden told CSN Bay Area on Wednesday. "Out of respect to my teammates, out of respect to the game. I think he's probably garnered a new respect for the unwritten rules and the people who hold them close to their game. But I think you're right, we don't do much talking in the 209."

"He's an individualistic player," Braden told CSN Bay Area. "He plays for the name on the back of the jersey, not the front. I don't know if he's noticed, but he doesn't have a name on the back over there so he should play for the name on the front."

Number one Dallas, you obviously do talk a lot in the "209" because you don't shut up about things, only continue to complain and make false threats, because you know as well as any body else if you throw at A-Rod next time your gonna be tossed and the mediocre A's will lose. Not that they wouldn't any way.

Number two, A-Rod is not an individualistic player, maybe 5 years ago that could be said of him, but not any more. In fact I think you are the more selfish player, considering all the talking you're doing.

Well, who can blame you for trying to spread your name, since clearly nobody outside of your locker room knows it.

So congratulations on becoming the man that yelled at A-Rod for cutting across the mound, I'm sure that's all you will be remembered for.
