There may be no “I” in “team” but it seems there is a “U” in “douche” when it comes to Alex Rodriguez…

Injured slugger Alex Rodriguez may be out of the Yankees lineup with a fractured hand, but he still showed some team spirit in the Hamptons over the weekend. The third baseman was seen hitting Southampton’s Omni Health Club — along with his buff gal pal Torrie Wilson — sporting an appropriately blue-and-white cast. Away from the gym, A-Rod hit the social scene — he was seen dining at Southampton’s 75 Main with his kids, then chatting with jet-setting New York State Sen. Malcolm Smith and publicist Todd Shapiro outside. “He was super friendly, even though so many people were going up to him to take pictures,” said a spy. “He stopped and posed for everyone.”

What’s the key to a speedy recovery from a broken hand? A weekend in the Hamptons.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was spotted in the Hamptons over the weekend with his new fashion accessory — a blue (but not quite Yankees blue) cast on his left hand.
Rodriguez, who suffered the broken hand, while the Yankees were facing the Mariners in Seattle last week, visited with the Bombers’ physician Thursday. But the team still has no firm timetable for his return.
CC Sabathia was on WFAN this morning and he was asked about these news reports on A-Rod. Specifically, CC was asked if players are prohibited from staying with the team and being in the ballpark when on the disabled list.
Sabathia said, when he was disabled earlier this year, he came to the park everyday to watch the games and support the team. Obviously, A-Rod doesn’t feel the same way.
Hey, by the way, what ever happened to that A-Rod who was a supposed “leader” on the Yankees?
