"George is getting angry!"

As related in recent Sports Illustrated and ESPN stories, George Steinbrenner apparently has called out Alex Rodriguez (a.k.a. A-Rod, A-Fraud, Slappy) to be more assertive as a member of the NY Yankees. One theory explaining why he didn't do so last season is that he tried too hard to be "one of the guys" and perhaps didn't want to jeopardize his relationship with Derek Jeter (a.k.a. Captain Intangibles, Calm Eyes). Both seem pretty close here, in the sense that misery loves company:

I'm not sure Steinbrenner is being entirely fair; if memory serves, A-Rod displayed plenty of assertiveness and initiative in the World Series last year:

I fail to see the problem.
