By now, you've seen Raul Ibanez hit not one, but two home runs in relief of Alex Rodriguez last night in one of the greatest performances in Yankees postseason history. Something tells us we'll be talking about it for a long, long time. But, at least one superstar athlete isn't impressed with it. That athlete is Kobe Bryant, who sounded quite upset about the finish of the Yankees/Orioles game when he was told about it by ESPN LA's Arash Markazi after the Lakers preseason game last night. Specifically, he wasn't happy to hear that A-Rod got pulled in favor of Ibanez:
Kobe, a Yankee fan, didn't crack a smile when told of the Yankees finish tonight. He considers A-Rod a good friend.— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) October 11, 2012
Kobe on the Yankees finish: "I don't like that. That's not good for the chemistry of the team. I'm going to have to call A-Rod."— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) October 11, 2012
Damn, Kobe. We understand sticking up for your friend. But, we hope you changed your attitude once you actually saw the finish to the game. Plus, have you seen your friend A-Rod play in the postseason this year? He deserved to get pulled, whether it was good for the chemistry of the team or not.
