    Great read on ESPN...I know, ESPN? Imagine that....

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/column...arting9/100505

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, a perennial All-Star and Hall of Fame-caliber lightning rod, recently landed in the middle of controversy with a seemingly harmless jog across San Francisco's East Bay. When Rodriguez cut across the pitcher's mound during a game against Oakland, A's pitcher Dallas Braden took offense and ripped him for his lack of professional courtesy. The incident set off a major turf war and prompted some inflammatory back-and-forth in the papers.

    Who knew? Each time a player tests the game's "unwritten rules,'' it spurs debate about what is and isn't kosher. One man's gamesmanship is another's breach of baseball's internal code.
    Great, great stuff from 3 all-time great pitchers Palmer, Blyleven & Gossage. Not too many pitchers today show this type of mentality.
