A-Rod Was Taken Out Of Game 1 Of The ALCS, So He Hit On Some Girls In The Stands

Alex Rodriguez was taken out of the Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night in the bottom of the eight inning, but his night wasn’t exactly over. No longer a part of the action, A-Rod decided it was time to exercise another part of his game, one which has probably had a higher rate of success of late.

Via the New York Post:

“After being replaced in the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the highest-paid Yankee openly flirted with a pair of pretty women two rows behind the dugout — even sending them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone numbers, a witness told The Post.

‘I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby,’ the witness said.

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.”

But did they comply? Weren’t they put off by his steroid abuse and atrocious playoff numbers? Of course not.

“‘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.”

Alex Rodriguez is 6-23 with 12 strikeouts during these playoffs, including a DNP in Game 5 of the ALDS. So it’s not like he’s had much to do, anyway. But we really don’t know how Torrie Wilsonwho he’s reportedly dating, will feel about this. Not so pleased, we presume. And there’s no word on whether the women actually wrote their numbers, though A-Rod’s smile might just be the only proof we need.

    Sooooooooooooooooo…..Dylan…..AROD was flirting with and signing autographs for women in the stands during a game, huh? A game being televised live….and not one piece of video has surfaced to back up the gossip claim in the Post? Really? We can only assume if there was video you would have posted it……but instead you decide to turn gossip monger and pass the stupid story along anyway. Good job.

    Indeed, I am a horrible person.

    Sure that’s what TBS and FOX want to show true baseball fans. Video of a fading, jacked up, soon to be has been baseball player flirting with two women in the stands as his team is getting their collective asses kicked.

    Actually this story is more fun to read than the Yankees currently are to watch.

    No….actually in today’s media that is exactly what they would love to show. They had their cameras trained on AROD most of the night, just trying to get some kind of reaction to what was going on in the game. Get real. If this story was true…TBS would have been all over it.

    The important thing here is that A-Roids is a pathetic joke.

    I think you may be confusing TBS with TMZ. Name the last 10 times that such crap was shown with a player on a major league baseball team being videotaped and a major network showing it? Or even name the last single time you’ve seen such content on any network actually broadcast flirting from a professional player in any sport?

    Networks have some class. Getting reaction on game content, sure. But who the hell wants to see anyone flirting with anyone unless it’s on a stupid reality show?

    You can show players playing around with kids, every network does that. But this type of activity, surely not.

    I await that list. Or let’s just go for one time. I’ll take one.

    Google Arod and Kate….or Cameron…take your pick of which video you like. When the networks left the Super Bowl “on the field” coverage and shot Cameron feeding Arod peanuts they got a lot of flack. It was stupid, but the networks wanted us to see it and the commentors had a lot to say about it at the time.

    Yeah but dude that was in the stands!!!

    I’m talking about on the field. That was at the 2011 SuperBowl not when he was in uniform and supposed to be part of HIS team’s game.

    Totally different.

    Hell we see all sports personalities seated doing crazy stuff while watching the game from the stands. But playing the game?

    Oh yeah, by the way I forgot to add a major television network…oooops not a network but a dumb syndicated show that I’m watching in my office right now. Yes that leading daytime program Inside Edition. They ran the A-Rod story right after the Zumba prostitution scandal story in Maine.

    Go figure.
