Alex Rodriguez is expected to receive a long suspension from MLB today. In this photo from Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS against the Red Sox, A-Rod hit a slow roller between first base and the pitcher’s mound. As Boston hurler Bronson Arroyo fielded the ball and tried to apply the tag, A-Rod slapped the ball from his glove. Derek Jeter, who was on first base, came around to score while Rodriguez advanced to second base as the ball rolled to shallow right field. The umpires huddled after the play and ruled that A-Rod’s slap was interference, forcing Jeter to return to second base and nullifying the run. Boston went onto win the game and the series.

In one of the more embarrassing revelations about Alex Rodriguez, a former A-Rod fling told US Weekly in 2009 that he had two painted portraits of himself as a centaur hanging above his bed. “He was so vain,” the ex told the magazine. “He had not one, but two painted portraits of himself as a centaur. You know, the half man, half horse figure? It was ridiculous.” (Photo composite by Dave Kaye/SI.com; Photo credits: Walter Iooss Jr./SI, Colin Anderson/Brand X/Getty Images)
