    Via CBS -

    Where Alex Rodriguez goes, drama follows.

    And in Reading, Pa., a motley crew of five security guys aren’t far behind.

    The group tasked with protecting A-Rod during Double-A Trenton’s trip to Reading included three local high school staffers (athletic director, principal and teacher), a Harley-Davidson dealership owner and, oh, a 6-foot-8 former WWE wrestler, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

    “Our detail is strictly A-Rod,” the aforementioned wrestler, Gene Snitsky, told the Star-Ledger. “Wherever he goes, we go.”

    Snitsky said the reception for A-Rod wasn’t “quite as bad” as he expected.

    “On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d say maybe a 7.5. … I expected it to be a lot worse,” he said.

    It’s a good thing.

    “Hopefully for the fans’ sake, they stay in the stands,” Snitsky told Pennlive.com on Monday. “Because if they don’t, there could be a problem. Not for me, but for them. So my advice would be: stay in the stands, ’cause if not, you might get hurt.”

    Did Derek Jeter have a security detail when he was rehabbing in the minors this year?

      Given the number of ink spilled, no one cares about Jeter, or at least not as much as Rodriguez. Whether that’s good or bad depends on your POV I suppose.

      As Raf said, I don’t think anyone cares about Jeter in the way one would care enough about Rodriguez to the point that he’d need a security detail.

      In any case, I hardly see why this is a big deal. It’s not like fans are paying for the extra security.
