Everyone thought he was dirty after the play in the 2004 World Series when he knocked the ball out of Bronson Arroyo's glove. Well now there's even more evidence. They say you're supposed to do whatever you can to break up a double play, but this is a little much don't you think?

"He went in late, kind of threw an elbow. It was a little cheap, but whatever," Pedroia said. "I play second base. I've got to turn the double play against the Yankees 19 times a year. And now I know, when he's coming in, my arm slot gets dropped to the floor."
Oh snap! Watch your dome A-Rod!!! It's not the worst cheap shot, but it's pretty bad. The worst I'd give to this guy....
