Alex Rodriguez has been eating. Seafood, mostly

The New York Daily News can confirm this outrageous bit of news:

The Yankee slugger, who has been MIA since he was linked to a Miami clinic under investigation by MLB for providing performance-enhancing drugs to baseball players, was caught leaving The Atlantic Grill on the Upper West Side.

According to insiders, A-Rod, who is rehabbing his left hip in the city while his teammates prepare for the season in Tampa, ate oysters, a mixed green salad and grilled branzino.

“A-Rod has been coming here for the last three days,” the insider said. “ He was drinking only water.”

Important stuff, obviously. The Daily News photos show Rodriguez in a pair of Nike sweatpants, stepping into the back of a black SUV. Which is basically every baseball blogger’s dream. Three days straight of sweatpants and oysters, with a designated driver.

A-Rod will earn $28 million in 2013. He’s not expected to be recovered from hip surgery until July.

      THe reputation of oysters as an aphrodisiac is over rated. I had six oysters last night only three of them worked.

    ….and this is news?? Why??

      I’m surprised the Daily News haven’t reported what color Alex poops , maybe
      they will report this by 11;00 am.

        Hello. He poops pinstripes.

    I don’t know why you insist on treating the Daily News as anything but tabloid nonsense.

    Oysters! Go easy on that hip now, Centaurius.

      Lots of thumbs up, which is encouraging. There were no oyster comments on the TV series that I can recall.

    Eat whatever you want, just make sure your rehab takes over five years.

    He’ll be eating elsewhere tomorrow.

    Oysters? Arod’s getting laid tonight.

    I feel like I’m missing something here.

  9. jrd8523 - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:22 PM

    It’s a good thing he has that inside source. Or else we might not have known he was only drinking water.

  10. baseballisboring - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:25 PM

    Yes, he will “earn” 28 million. Baaahahahahaha

    Of course he eats seafood. He eats nothing BUT seafood. That’s how he got those lips. He’s starting to turn into a fish.

    That’s why his hips are crumbling. That’s phase one of turning legs into a tail.

    • Old Gator - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:46 AM

      The loss of our prehensile tails was one of the worst mistakes of evolution. We could be out of the bathroom in half the time in the morning if we could brush out teeth and shave simultaneously. No loving god would have done that to us. That’s a lot of the reason why I’m an atheist.

    Miss Lippys car.. Is green.

    those oysters are loaded with PCPs,red tide and some Hep A or B. Pass the Tabasco.

    • Old Gator - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:46 AM

      What – you don’t use horseradish? Gurly man.

      • badintent - Feb 23, 2013 at 2:52 AM

        That stuff goes on my Gator burgers

  14. mazblast - Feb 21, 2013 at 2:05 AM

    I loathe A-Roid, but this is going too far. There is no reason to need to know where or what this guy eats, and no reason to care.

  15. Old Gator - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:47 AM

    Two and a half months of stone crab season left, A-Roid. You’re in Florida, man. Scarf ‘em up.

    • badintent - Feb 23, 2013 at 2:51 AM

      Joe’s is so over rated , over priced,at least at Wolf’s you get a big triple decker with al the fixings for under $15. That gets you a bottle of some glacier water at Joe’s
