A-Rod Grocery is changing its name.
The grocery store was changed from Pena Grocery to A-Rod Grocery thirteen years ago while the third baseman was still playing with the Seattle Mariners.
Rodriguez eventually came to join the Yankees and patrons at the store soon believed that Rodriguez may even had a owners stake in the place.
Instead the store is owned by 41-year-old Richard Rodriguez who is not related to the Yankees third baseman.
“I got tired of all these people complaining” said Rodriguez to the NY Daily News.
“Why should I have to listen to all of them? It’s not fair. I don’t even know the guy.”
Currently Rodriguez has no idea what he will name the grocery store but customers will be happy as long as A-Rod is gone.
BEST OF MAXIM
How much better do you believe yourself to be than Alex Rodriguez. Sure, he lied. So have you. Oh, but he lied again! Again, so have you. But he took PEDs! Yeah, well, who doesn’t take meds? Ya know what? I will let Real Sports’ Bryant Gumbel takeover from here as he pontificates on the A-Rod situation, and more specifically, America’s reaction to it. Gumbel Commentary: America’s...
Sooner or later, someone was going to get around to comparing embattled New York Yankees' third baseman Alex Rodriguez to Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel. Naturally, that someone had to be The Boston Globe columnist and Around the Horn panelist Bob Ryan.
I'll save you the A*Rod stuff, as it's the usual regurgitation of blah, blah, blah, PEDs, blah...
A-Rod, A-Fraud, or Alex Rodriguez.
There was a time when Alex Rodriguez was widely considered the best baseball player alive. Those days are long gone. We are now reduced to Oompa Loopma jokes and pictures of him making out with himself.
Rodriguez has 649 career home runs and 1,956 RBI, both good for fifth all-time. We should be celebrate not berate.
He will never be as beloved...
The owner of a Brooklyn bodega named after New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez says he'll change the store's name as more and more customers complain about the beleaguered baseball star.
Owner Ricardo Rodriguez tells the Daily News (http://nydn.us/1aAs44e ) Saturday that customers have been kvetching about the name of his store, A-Rod Grocery.
The establishment was called Pena...
Funny how Alex Rodriguez, the player Bill Madden repeatedly insisted "will never play another game for the Yankees," is arguably the biggest reason that the Yankees have won 11 of their last 14 games and are now just 3 1/2 games out of a wild card spot, and 6 games out of the division lead. So where is Bill Madden's mea culpa?It isn't happening, of course. The...
The owner of a Brooklyn grocery named after embattled New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is succumbing to pressure and looking at changing the name of his business.
First. Who knew there was such a thing? Second. It should get a name change. "A-Rod Grocery" is a dumb name. And, yeah...I realize how childish that sounds.
“I got tired...
In an anonymous "survey" of starting pitchers (N=36), ESPN.com is claiming that none of the sample of pitchers would "want to bean Alex Rodriguez". In fact, only one of the 36 said it would be worth a suspension to give The Fraudulent One his comeuppance. And, 83.3% thought A-Fraud should be allowed to continue playing during his seemingly endless appeals process...
David Ortiz doesn’t get what all the fuss is about.
Ortiz rubbed some people the wrong way earlier this week when he told USA Today Sports that he didn’t think that Ryan Dempster drilling Alex Rodriguez during Sunday’s Red Sox-Yankees game was the right thing to do. Ortiz still stands by his comments, but he also thinks that everyone is blowing the whole situation out of proportion...
Joe Maddon‘s message was simple. The Rays manager didn’t like that Ryan Dempster threw at Alex Rodriguez intentionally.
Maddon’s Rays pose the biggest threat to the Red Sox in the American League East, so surely he enjoyed watching the Yankees respond to Rodriguez getting plunked by taking down the Sox on Aug. 18. He didn’t enjoy the actual incident, though, as he feels that...

The New York Yankees have been there before.
And Alex Rodriguez vs. Pinstripes is nothing like the bad ol' days of Reggie Jackson vs. Billy Martin vs. George Steinbrenner.

1) Ryan Dempster throws intentionally at Alex Rodriguez four times in a row, and doesn’t get tossed. 2) …The post The Top 5 Reasons Why MLB Needs New Umpires appeared first on On Her Game.
Outside of Milwaukee Brewer superstar Ryan Braun, no other Major League Baseball player is as despised as New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. Ironically, UFC president Dana White, who is a die hard Boston Red Sox fanboy, came to A-Rod’s defense while appearing as a guest on “Fox Sports 1 Live.”
Granted, White didn’t give A-Rod props for anything he has accomplished on the field...
New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi was livid, veins bulging in his neck, as he peppered home plate umpire Brian O'Nora with profanity after Boston's Ryan Dempster hit Alex Rodriguez in the left elbow on a 3-0 pitch.
Red Sox fans proclaimed Dempster a hero and many folks wondered why Girardi would stand up so forcefully over the plunking of a player regarded by many as...
You haven’t really experienced all that is the New York Yankees and their Evil Empire until you’ve been to their Global HQ. As much as I’m on baseball hiatus, I couldn’t pass up a chance to visit the new DeathStar, the second DeathStar in all its glory when I was in New York City a couple days ago. You don’t have to like baseball to appreciate Yankee Stadium.
I had visited...
