Yankees_Alex_Rodriguez_1 [1]Don’t expect to see Tampa Bay Rays pitchers throwing at Alex Rodriguez when the Yankees come to the Trop this weekend.

Manager Joe Maddon said he disagreed with Red Sox RHP Ryan Dempster taking it on himself to hit Rodriguez, who has been a lightning rod since being suspended for PED reasons and playing while waiting for an appeal to be heard. Also that Dempster, who Tuesday was suspended for five games, deserved a more severe punishment.

“Vigilante justice and unilateral decisions, I’m not into that stuff,” Maddon said. “There’s rules in place. There’s a board that’s assigned to make those kind of decisions. I believe in players controlling the game itself in regards to what’s happening in that game, and we always talk about policing that.
