Great news for Yankees fans. They still owe this tool $150 million for five more seasons. He can’t hit an 80 MPH fastball, but can still hit on some women in the crowd. Good grief.
He’s got balls.
Shameless Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez was playing so poorly against the Detroit Tigers Saturday night that he was yanked from the lineup — but that didn’t stop him from trying to score.
After being replaced in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the highest-paid Yankee openly flirted with a pair of pretty women two rows behind the dugout — even sending them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone numbers, a witness told The Post.
“I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby,’’ the witness said.
Instead of rooting on his teammates as they struggled to stay alive during the tense game at Yankee Stadium, A-Rod, 37, had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their numbers.
“Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy,’’ the witness explained.
“The girls, who had already caught two balls, seemed bemused at first and tried to hand the ball to another fan, but other fans noticed the note on it and yelled at them to read it.
“The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back,’’ the witness said.
“One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote . . . on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile.”
“They exchanged a few glances after that,’’ as A-Rod took a powder while a pinch-hitter took his place at the plate.
Not that it’s the first time an athlete has tried to pick up women out of the stands. But it’s pretty ballsy at that moment in time. This guy can’t leave town soon enough.
