Strike Three, You're Out

After being benched during Game 1 of the AL Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was flirting with two female fans sitting behind the team’s dugout in an attempt to reach first base for the first time all month. Rodriguez handed a baseball to the team’s batboy, who then threw the ball to one of the women. On the ball, A-Rod asked for the woman’s number.

According to witnesses, she followed by writing “.125” on the ball, representing his batting average during the Division Series, and threw it back to the batboy. Rodriguez later called the number to no avail. But when teammate Derek Jeter was injured and taken out of the game, A-Rod figured that he had finally reached his limit. He then began attempting to communicate with the women telepathically, but did not receive an answer. He then attempted to figure out their numbers himself, but when he dialed, was discouraged to hear the voice of bullpen coach Mike Harkey on the other end.

Manager Joe Girardi finally figured that Rodriguez was not in a great mental state, and felt that the easiest way to end the pain was to send him up to hit for the first time of the night. He swung and missed at three pitches, marking the third time he had struck out all night. While on his way back into the dugout, he waved at the two girls behind the dugout. This attracted even greater jeering from the few Yankees fans left in the stands.

A-Rod, a slam of meat with no brain...  so uninteresting to me.  His interviews are dull as dishwater.
