Details magazine has a story about A-Rod that touches on all the usual subjects. The writer did a particularly nice job of capturing the feel of the press conference, writing about the other players looking like they were dragged to a school assembly.
A-Rod claimed he rides the subway to games on Fridays. That seems a little far-fetched, but whatever.
Details also had him pose kissing himself in a mirror. Why Alex’s posse of advisors thought that was OK is a mite curious, but they did.
(Seriously, does anybody get worse advice than this guy? Anybody? What do you figure would happen if a photographer asked Tiger Woods to kiss himself in a mirror? There would be a two-iron wrapped around his neck. Alex’s ability to continually do and say strange things is amazing. He’s the Cal Ripken of bad decisions.)
Meanwhile, his rehab continues in Colorado. The Yankees have no idea when Alex will return to the team and, frankly, nobody is pushing the issue. These last two weeks have been pretty peaceful.
Hopefully the rehab clinic has plenty of mirrors.
