• Crazed Cameron Diaz Fan Makes A Run At A-Rod

    An unhinged fan with a crush on Cameron Diaz ran onto the Yankee Stadium field during Monday night’s game to confront A-Rod about his love for the stunning starlet, sources said.

    But Grim LeRogue, 33, was tackled by Stadium security as he attempted to rush the third baseman in the top of the fifth inning in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, cops said.

    Tucked in LeRogue’s pocket, police found a picture of Alex Rodriguez with his face crossed out and a drawing of a small gun pointed at his head, a source said. Etched on the photo were the words, “You gotta go, buddy.”

    “He was absolutely out of his f—–g mind,” said the source, adding that LeRogue was rambling the entire time he was in custody.

    A-Rod left the Stadium Tuesday night without taking questions after the 10-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.

    The crazed Bronx man, who did not have a weapon, also told police that he wanted to kill Bobby Brown, because Osama Bin Laden has a crush on the Grammy winner’s wife, Whitney Houston, the source said.

    But he opted to act first on his chance at love with the 38-year-old “What Happens in Vegas” star.

    “He gave a rambling interview that he had an infatuation with Cameron Diaz,” the source said. “He thought by going out and choking A-Rod he’d be a hero to her.” LeRogue also told investigators he legally changed his name from John Rogan as a strategy to sell a 700-page book he’s trying to market, sources said.

    “I think it’s publicity for his book,” said his mother, Catherine Rogan. “I’m sure he’s fine,” she said of his condition.

    LeRogue, charged with assault and interfering with a sporting event, was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Bellevue Hospital.

    There’s a part of me who wants to make a joke and say that the real threat to A-Rod is the crazed Dr. Anthony Galea fan who’s going to rush the field in today’s game. But, truly, this is some very, very serious stuff here. This whole thing could have gone down a lot worse – and then some. Good job by Stadium security to react to this as quickly as they did last night. And, for Alex’s sake, I’m glad that no harm came his way.

      That’s sounding like a Mark David Chapman-John Lennon situation and it’s not a joking matter at all.

      Just a little. ;-)

      Of course he did. Steve never misses a shot to take a shot at A-Rod, whether facts, circumstances or potentially deranged psycho stalkers stand in his way or not.

      Why stadiums don’t hire young, fast, strong security to chase after fans is beyond me. Instead, we usually see some lumbering, out of shape cops chasing after these freaks.

      It’s just a matter of time when, not if, a player gets hurt one day.

      They need to just play a video from a College World Series here in Omaha few years back. This clown runs out on the field in his underwear and eludes a couple of cops. Meanwhile, an older female cop is just waiting for him, and as soon as he is in her area, she tackles the guy with a picture-perfect takedown on to the warning track in the foul area. She just leveled him. That would scare a lot of guys away from doing it.

      @ lisaswan:
      And lisa, we already saw a first base coach injured in Chicago a few years back, so you are 100% right.

      Simple solution: It’s like the movies The Running Man and Wedlock. Everyone going into the Stadium is fitted with a collar. And, if they run on the field or try and take the collar off, their head explodes. Set a timer on the collars for them to open and disable 15 minutes after the last out of the game.

      And, yes, I’m kidding.

      As I said on another thread… Let this guy have Cam-Di. Call Kay-Hud and call her now. We need A-Rod ’09 vintage and we need him this afternoon. There are 5 or 6 guys on the Rangers that are more imposing hitters than A-Rod (or Tex, or Swish, or Grandy, etc… to be fair)right now.

      Kay-Hud, if you are out there, call me.

      On the field-runners…. I can’t see the league having a set of sprinters in red, white and blue spandex, with the MLB logo of course, stretching in the bullpen, staying warm in case they have to spring into action. But, Tasers. Farm-grade Tasers. Now that will deter the next guy.

      I’m starting to think we’ll never see another post-season from A-Rod like we saw in 2009 now that his doctor from north of the border is cooked.

      The same old bullshit.

      You don’t think that A-Rod’s 2010 post-season is looking much, much, more like his from 2005-2007 than his from 2009? And, that 2009 is looking more like a fluke compared to his other four post-seasons (including this one)? Something was different for him in 2009. Or, was that just the magic of kate Hudson?

      Specious logic. You’re using small sample sizes to make declarative statements. Does that mean that Sabathia was on PED’s in last year’s playoff also, considering his lousy 2007/2008/2010 playoff performances and his exceptional work in 2009?

      Slumps happen. If Alex was on PED’s during the ’09 playoffs and not in the ’10 playoffs, then how come he stopped using them? Did Alex take PED’s in September 2010 to achieve his 13th consecutive 30-100 campaign but decide to shelve the PED regimen on the eve of the playoffs, when the incentive to cheat would be highest?

      All due respect Steve but your argument is full of logical holes.

      @ MJ Recanati:
      I wish the A-Rod haters would get their story straight. Is it that he’s mentally weak in the playoffs, or on steroids? And how do these magic PEDs work, anyway? He was great in the 2004 ALDS, and the first half of the ALCS, then the juice wore off?

      At any rate, I’m kind of appalled at some of the “jokes” I’ve seen online about A-Rod and this stalker. I’m not exactly a Torre fan, but I would never joke about such a thing if it happened to him.

      100% right, Lisa. On both counts.
