Oh well, there's always the Redskins. Oh, wait, they kinda suck too.
I am well aware of the struggle the New York Yankees find themselves in, however. After losing Derek Jeter to an
Alex Rodriguez did have a ball delivered to two female fans in the Yankee Stadium crowd during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, and it was witnessed by New York Yankees personnel, a team source confirmed.Lets not be naive here: this sorta thing does happen. I've witness women slide their phone numbers to a team trainer/assistant coach firsthand, all with the goal of getting the attention of a star player. And mind you, I'm talking about the perpetually struggling Washington Wizards. So when you're talking the biggest star on the biggest team in America's biggest city, it wouldn't be shocking to hear that some ladies are tryin' to holla at A-Rod while he's playing. The problem is (duh!) him trying to holla back, when he's in the midst of an ALCS game, and mired in a terrible batting slump. That's just dumb.
The New York Post reported that Rodriguez, who had been removed from the game for a pinch hitter, had written a note on the ball in search of one of the women's phone numbers and had a ball boy deliver it to the fans. The newspaper identified the women as Kyna Treacy, an Australian bikini model, and her friend Kate Quinn.
Rodriguez is 0 for 18 with 12 strikeouts against right-handed pitching in the playoffs. He is 3 for 23 in the postseason overall.
Much like A-Rod's other notable woman-related off-field issues (Madonna, that ex-wife) this unfortunately provides just one more distraction for the Bronx Bombers. I'm sure the team's willing to put up with distractions when Rodriguez is playing at an All-Star level. He's currently not, and is a big reason why this team's probably headed home soon.
If I'm the Yankees, I's give A-Rod a new home soon. I hear
Question: Is this the least professional in-game behavior you've ever heard of?!?
