A-Rod is clearly checked out completely. His performance has been lack-luster and he’s been dropped in the batting order and even replaced in the lineup.
Eye witnesses from Game 1 told the New York Post that Alex Rodriguez openly flirted with two females sitting near the New York Yankees dugout.
Reportedly he instructed a bat boy to toss the women a ball with a piece of paper wrapped around it, write their phone number on it, and then pass it back. The ladies complied and as far as we know they gave him a phone number.
The Post reports:
“Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy,” the witness explained.
“The girls, who had already caught two balls, seemed bemused at first and tried to hand the ball to another fan, but other fans noticed the note on it and yelled at them to read it.
“The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back,” the witness said.
“One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote . . . on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile.”
“They exchanged a few glances after that,” as A-Rod took a powder while a pinch-hitter took his place at the plate.
Seems to me as though A-Rod needs to take his eyes of the ladies in the stands and start watching the ball on the field. The Yankees aren’t paying him to pick-up chicks during the games they’re paying him tons of money to attend.
