You can't have it both ways depending on who it is, you either defend gamesmanship or come down on it.

And fwiw, I don't think either one is particularly bad at all...hell, what Jeter did nine billion hockey players do on a daily basis (exaggerate to sell a call). A-Rod's act was no different than John Madden yelling 'ACE' to Mario in the playoffs rofl.
Baseball has "unwritten rules" that hockey doesn't have. It's impossible to keep track of them all, but apparently the bush league psych out stuff falls under one of them.
