Whether they did it or not, these guys are pushing A-Rod's buttons, stirring his emotions which he takes out on the ball and hits a home run! You see, all these rumors are only making his game better, which means he'll earn even more money, making him the most wanted man in baseball, which will make Madonna want him even more. So I don't really see the end of this working out very well for Guy Richie, who I think is the brilliant one in all of this. What he should do is use this mess in one of his upcoming Snatch-ish films and have the Russians finish A-Rod off. Classic Hollywood ending!
