We just spoke to Alex Rodriguez about playing in tomorrow’s game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin. He said he was prepared for the worst in terms of the fans.
“I’ve had a lot of practice the last eight years,” he said. “Just hopefully get three good at-bats, gets some good running in and go home and have a nice dinner.”
When asked about the upcoming meeting with MLB investigators regarding his use of PEDs, Rodriguez said he didn’t know when it.
“I have no idea,” he said. “I’ve heard the same thing you guys have heard. Probably you guys have heard more. … I’m not sure. I’m just waiting to hear from somebody. Maybe Jean. I’m not sure.”
We weren’t sure whether he meant MLBPA official Gene Orza or Yankees assistant general manager Jean Afterman. A couple of reporters stopped Rodriguez on his way out to ask who he was referring to.
“I don’t know,” he said.
