The Other Paper:
Alex Rodriguez has been known for his primping and preening on and off the field and now that attention to detail could be put to good use. An independent film company said it will be offering the New York Yankees slugger a role playing a drag queen in an upcoming movie.
Page Six of the New York Post reports that A-Rod is being approached to play a drag queen in an upcoming indie film based on Salvador Dali— "The Surrealist" starring Alan *******.
Producers said they think Rodriguez would be ideal in the role as Dali's "factotum social secretary" Potassa — a stunning, leggy drag queen.
Maybe they should change the title to "La Batting Cage Aux Folles?"
"It's quite a good idea and has a serious side to it," says the director, Philippe Mora. "Dali was obsessed with baseball. Walt Disney used to take him to [games]. At first, it sounds hilarious, but it's a serious offer."
Mora said the idea was cooked up by Richard Dupont— a Dali and Andy Warhol acolyte who said A-Rod has "great legs."
Dali's obsession with baseball extended to an animated short created for Disney in 1946, "Destino" which featured a ballet dancer who falls for a ballplayer. The film was finally completed and released in 2003.
The premise of a lady wrestler falling for a baseball slugger sounds a little more like Rodriguez's speed.
The image of A-Rod wearing Halston or Oscar de la Renta gown is just one of those quirky indie film ideas right now.
"It's early days," Mora said. "The role might not seem like macho A-Rod's cup of tea, but then he did date Madonna."
Anyway, wearing a dress on "Saturday Night Live" didn't hurt Derek Jeter's reputation a few years ago. He actually got a new fan base. Imagine, 'A-Rod Queen of the Diamond.'
Rodriguez's rep had no comment about laying down the drag bunt.

Do you think the New York Yankees are in trouble?
Well, the Yankees are off to a horrid start to the 2012 season, as they got out pitched, out hit and out managed by the Tampa Bay Rays who swept the Bombers right out of Tropicana Field this past weekend.
Even though it is the beginning of the season, I was embarrassed for the Yankees, as it...
Buffalo, NY – It was a record breaking day for the Bisons in their home opener as they dominated the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 12-3 in front of an announced 10,905 fans at Coca-Cola Field.
The 12 runs broke the Bisons previous record for runs in a home opener, a 10 run outing in a win over Pawtucket in 2003.
While the bulk of the runs came in the fourth inning, the Buffalo...
HOUSTON- Nameplates are often last on the checklist in the frenzy of player transactions, thus while Justin Maxwell was sufficiently outfitted for his Astros debut and announced his arrival with a two-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning on Monday night at Minute Maid Park, the space next to the No. 22 above his locker remained blank afterward.
That logistical hazard did...

In the movie Major League, Ricky Vaughn (played by none other than Charlie Sheen), came out to the song Wild Thing by The Troggs. That was partly due to his personality, but also because Ricky had a little trouble throwing strikes. in Major League Baseball, Mitch Williams took that role, and adopted the same song for similar reasons.
After last night’s poor performance...
The New York Yankees (2-3) beat the Baltimore Orioles (3-2) 5-4 in 12 innings, tonight at Camdem Yards.
Freddy Garcia made his first start of the season and it was tough to watch. He went 4.2 innings, allowed 4 hits, 4 runs (1 HR), walked 3 and struck out 3 batters for 98 pitches.
