The Alex Rodriguez haters would agree that A-Rod’s beaning at the hand of Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster Sunday night was some fitting vigilante justice.

Big Papi had some interesting comments Thursday, telling USA Today Sports,
"I didn't like it. I don't think it was the right thing to do. But we don't all think alike, and the guy who did it, Dempster, is a great guy. It's not that I didn't think it was right because Alex and I are friends, because once you cross the white lines, everyone's on their own.

Alex later hit one way out there. You're talking about a good team that you can't wake up. But we learn from our mistakes."
