Most Yankees fans were feeling good about Alex Rodriguez coming into this morning. A New York Times article brought news that we may see Alex earlier than expected:
“Actually, he’s ahead of schedule,” Philippon said Wednesday. “He’s a very disciplined athlete, very easy to work with. So far, we don’t have any curveballs.”
Philippon said that within a half-hour of the surgery, which was performed March 9, Rodriguez was riding a stationary bike, the normal procedure for Philippon’s patients in order to regain confidence and muscle memory.
For now, Rodriguez is limited to pool work and motion exercises that include hip rotations that simulate a swing. The rehabilitation is conducted in a separate part of the clinic.
“He already has better range of motion than he had before,” Philippon said.
The good vibes, however, did not last long, as a new A-Rod scandal is on the horizon. The Daily News is reporting that Alex Rodriguez frequently used the same call girl service as former governor Elliot Spitzer, and even dated the madam that ran the operation:
A former Manhattan madam who supplied Eliot Spitzer with hookers also counted Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez as a customer – and found him so charming she dated him herself for free, former employees of the call-girl agency tell the Daily News.
A-Rod wooed ex-madam Kristin Davis with flowers, jewelry, persistence and heated e-mails, according to the sources.
“Throughout the years, there were a number of clients that I befriended and it was not uncommon for them to want the women they can’t have whether it be the phone bookers or the madam,” Davis said.
Unbelievable. The man cannot go more than ten minutes without another scandal touching him. Personally, I think that stuff like this is nobody’s business but his own. However, that does not absolve Alex for his poor decision making. The man makes some very bad personal choices, and he has to know that his status as a star ballplayer is likely to lead to his infidelities coming to light. We have reached a point at which we just sadly shake our head when we hear things like this about Alex, as if we were just waiting for another thing like this to come into the open. Alex better hurry back and quiet some of this gossip babble with his bat.
