If one Brooklyn man has his way with A-Rod at a charity lunch, the T-bone won't be the only beef getting grilled.

Joe Schiff has saved up $3,500 with plans on bidding to have lunch with Alex Rodriguez as part of David Ortiz’s Celebrity Golf Classic in order to ask the Yankees third baseman about the slugger's PED allegations, according to NJ.com. Schiff explained the dastardly reason behind his bid.
“I thought it would be pretty cool to sit down with one of the most controversial people in the world,” Schiff said. “What I’m thinking about asking A-Rod is: Are you guilty?
“I want to make it as awkward as possible for him. … He’s ripping off the Yankees off for $28 million a year. I think it’s wrong.”
It's not exactly Cameron Diaz hand-feeding him popcorn. Schiff has already bid against himself and said he is willing to go all the way up to $3,500, if necessary, though one could question the strategy behind divulging that information with bidding open until Dec. 14. It's quite possible A-Rod could bid $3,501 just to get out of the lunch date.

Rodriguez’s arbitration hearing has been completed, and he is awaiting a decision on his 211-game suspension from MLB for alleged PED use.

Schiff, who works in software sales, also wants to ask Rodriguez about his dating life, remembering A-Rod's antics during the 2012 playoffs when he tried to retrieve a girl’s phone number from the Yankee Stadium seats. 

You’re a pretty smart guy, but I don’t know how you make all the wrong choices in life,” Schiff said of Rodriguez, who is dating Torrie Wilson. ”Why can’t you just settle down?

Schiff did concede he would be willing to talk baseball at lunch, if he got shut down by a publicist.
