Oh if life couldn’t get any more weird for Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees third-baseman is in the midst of a minor league rehab assignment, and battling MLB and what appears to be a future suspension due to his involvement with the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic. While playing for the Trenton Thunder on Monday, A-Rod appeared at the field for the Reading Phillies and they supplied him with his own personal security detail, which, get this, includes a former WWE wrestler and a high school principal. According to the Patriot News, Corey Jones, is the principal is in charge of making sure A-Rod turns right or left where ever he goes, or so it seems. Then there is Gene Snitsky, who was best known for his obscene backne while a member of the WWE, is the lead muscle of this 5-man security team. Apparently this is common behavior from the Phillies AA team, as they have often welcomed several high-profile stars from teh Yankees organization in similar situations. They do their best to keep an eye on these guys to make sure that nothing happens to them. How hilarious is it that a guy who was probably roiding it up in the [...]

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Murray would reportedly give Cowboys hometown discount

As expected, the Dallas Cowboys decided to use their franchise tag on Dez Bryant rather than DeMarco Murray. Keeping both Bryant and Murray — in addition to Tony Romo’s massive salary — is going to be incredibly challenging for Jerry Jones and company. A hometown discount would help. ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Murray is...Read More

Hamels trade talk motivating Red Sox pitching staff

  Cole Hamels this, Cole Hamels that. It’s impossible to bring up the Boston Red Sox in spring training without Hamels’ name coming up.   The Red Sox’s lack of a starting pitcher who is considered a true ace has been a major storyline in Fort Myers, Fla., where the Red Sox opened their exhibition schedule Tuesday. Rick Porcello, Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Wade...

A-Rod goes 0-2 against Yankees pitching machine 'Iron Mike'

Alex Rodriguez went up against a pitching machine — not against a live-armed pitcher — during Monday’s “live game” action, but the results for the New York Yankees slugger still were underwhelming after he went 0-for-2 in a showdown against a pitching machine intimidatingly named “Iron Mike.” While his official debut on the field in...Read More The post Alex Rodriguez...
