Alex Rodriguez hasn’t been getting it done at the plate in the postseason – 3-for-23, zero homers, zero RBI, 12 strikeouts, one DNP – so nobody should be surprised that he’s trying his luck with the ladies instead … in the middle of a postseason game.
After getting yanked for a pinch hitter in the 8th inning of a Game 1 loss to the Tigers, the New York Post alleges that A-Rod sent two blondes a note asking for their digits.
Instead of rooting on his teammates as they struggled to stay alive during the tense game at Yankee Stadium, A-Rod, 37, had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their numbers.
“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.”
Well done, A-Fraud. He’s totally that guy … you know, the rich, entitled guy who gets handed his Final Exam test score of an F, laughs it off, and then leans over to the hot chick seated next to him and asks her if she has plans for the nothing. What does A-Rod care about postseason success? The guy has Scrooge McDuck money, and he’s got five more years of it coming his way.
