• What Do A-Rod & Rosie O’Donnell Have In Common?

    At times, no love from The Donald!

    Via the Daily News

    Don’t look for Alex Rodriguez to be cast on any future seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

    Donald Trump in a tweet last fall took a shot at A-Rod after he made the final out in last year’s ALDS loss to the Tigers, calling him “a less than average baseball player now that he is unable to use drugs.”

    The Donald was back at it during Sunday’s episode of the NBC reality show, taking another shot at A-Rod while praising ’80s pop star Debbie Gibson for saying she didn’t care who received the credit as long as her team wins.

    “That’s all about winning; that’s a Derek Jeter-type statement,” Trump said. “We love Derek. That’s not an A-Rod statement; it’s a Derek statement.”

    Asked Monday about Trump’s latest swipe at him, A-Rod smiled and chose not to respond, sticking to his new mantra.

    “Just baseball,” Rodriguez said with a smile.

    Of course, Jeter lives in Trumps house…even though he wants to sell his penthouse at Trump Tower for $20 million.

    Here, on one hand, you have Trump, using A-Rod and the fact that it’s almost baseball season to drum up some press for him and his show. And, on the other hand, you have A-Rod, who has put himself in this position to have people take pot shots at him – because of his past antics.

    Something tells me this is not the last time that Trump will play this game. And, it’s probably not the last time that someone will say something about A-Rod too.

    This one, now, is just the flavor of the day.

      Donald’s a dick. He looks foolish now for trying to be an advocate for the stupid “birther” movement, he has frequently sounded extremely stupid talking politics, and now he’s using ARod as his personal punching bag.

      It’s getting old, ARod has been pretty quiet, and he’s trying to be a good citizen. I’m past all the nonsense.

      @ Garcia:
      Agree 100%.

      Donald is a schmuck and no one with taste or sensibility watches his shows or listens to him.

      I would love to hear what you, Steve, think about Joel Sherman’s plan to extend A-Rod another year.

      I didn’t see that…Sherman wasn’t being serious, was he??

      Yep:

      it’s an interesting idea, but I really don’t think that’s the solution…imagine A-Rod at 43? Good lord.

      As a Yanks fan, anything that’s not “Let’s try and get rid of A-Rod as soon as possible” is a bad idea to me.

      @ Steve L.:

      I’m w/ you, Steve.

      Corey, I couldn’t be bothered reading Sherman once he started on detailing why he thinks extending Arod is such a good idea. Geez.

      Unfortunately you’re then missing out on a way that the Yankees could end up freeing more money to pursue free agents now that the Steinbrenners are serious about playing under the $189M mark.

      Sherman is an ass but there’s no sense dismissing a thought-provoking article just because the writer has been a douche in the past.

      That’s pretty funny statement, nothing like a back-handed compliment with a wooden paddle across the side of Sherman’s face.
