Bob Raissman would have you believe that new Cubs manager Lou Piniella loves Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez from his frosted tips to his twinkle toes. Of course, Bob Raissman is an old timey-weightlifter.
“Twelve repetitions on each side, Cornelius! Ready? Hup! Hup! Hup!”
Raissman’s article suggests that when Piniella was managing Rodriguez in Seattle, Piniella kissed him, sat in his underwear with him until 2:30-3:00 a.m. to talk about his “swing,” and cried when he left Seattle.
The Good: Rodriguez can opt out of his contract with the Yankees at the end of this season, and Raissman makes it seem that he would like to reunite with his former manager.
The Bad: Piniella and Rodriguez apparently had the same slumber parties that Derek Jeter and Rodriguez had.
The Ugly: Piniella in his underwear.
