• What, There Are No Tic Tac’s On The Menu?

    Alex Rodriguez’s hip may have put his baseball career on hold for a while, but the Yankee slugger’s love life and appetite are in midseason form.

    Rodriguez, who has been keeping a low profile while rehabbing his surgically repaired hip in New York, was spotted Wednesday leaving the Atlantic Grill after lunch with gal pal Torrie Wilson and another man. According to an employee at the upper West Side eatery, Rodriguez and Wilson are practically regulars.

    “They come in all the time,” said a female member of the wait staff. “She’s his girlfriend. They’d been here since 2 p.m.”

    Wednesday was the first official spotting of Rodriguez since he posted photos of himself on his Facebook page following hip surgery on Jan. 16.

    More than a week later, he went MIA after being linked to a Miami clinic being probed by Major League Baseball for selling performance-enhancing drugs. Since he is rehabbing his hip, he’s been a no-show at Yankee camp in Tampa, where his teammates are preparing for the 2013 season.

    Brian Cashman said last week that the Bombers do not expect to see Rodriguez in camp. Rodriguez does not figure to return as a player until at least midseason, if at all.

    Meanwhile, he is spending his time at the Atlantic Grill.

    One insider said Rodriguez “has been coming here for the last three days,” and Wednesday A-Rod feasted on oysters, a mixed green salad and grilled branzino fish.

    Well, it’s nice to see Alex come out of his bunker…

      Reason #845 why tabloid journalism is pointless and not worthy of respect: they spent 241 words telling us that Alex Rodriguez ate oysters, a salad and grilled fish. In other news, I had pasta with eggplant and grilled chicken last night. After that, I watched TV with my wife and played Temple Run 2 on my iPhone.

      Why would anyone care to read about that? It’s Alex, so merely using his name in an article drives page hits, I get that. But that’s why the media is pathetic and craven; they’re reporting a completely mundane event (lunch) to drive traffic.

      OT a bit….anyone see the pic of a heavier Mike Trout at spring training?

      He looks like Joba from the waist down right now.

      @ 77yankees:
      He looks alot stronger. Bryce Harper put on like 30 lbs this off season too. Might be some scary numbers these 2 put up this year.

      Chicks may dig the longball, but fantasy players dig 30/50 guys.

      Bigger stronger legs means being faster

      Here’s the pic: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/fantasy-roto-arcade/angels-lineup-now-7-percent-more-mike-trout-124013301–mlb.html;_ylt=A2KJ2Ubj4yZRvD8AP5bQtDMD

      Trout’s & Harper’s weight will drop as the games get started, but if either pops a hammy on a chilly Northeast or Midwest evening in April, well……
