A-Rod Says Jeremy Lin Can Stay At His Apartment
New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, has an interesting offer for New York Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin.
Rodriguez told the press at Spring Training,
“If he’s still looking for a place to crash, maybe he can crash at my apartment. Imagine the tabloids then. Linsanity. Wow. What a run. You look at the Giants, you look at Linsanity and there’s been so many great things happening in New York. We kind of feel like we want to jump in the party. The great thing about Linsanity is that, it kind of reminds you of how fun the game should be,” he added. “For some of us that have been playing for a long time, it’s just the one second you take the game for granted, it makes you realize how much fun the game is.”
“That’s how much pain he was under, and said after he went to Germany that he felt like a 27-year-old again,” Rodriguez said. “Now the thing is, if I can play as well as Kobe, we’re in business.”
A-Rod played in just 99 games last season and hit 16 home runs. He had knee surgery which caused his numbers to go down for the rest of the season.
“My knee does feel a lot better,” Rodriguez said. “Basically it was five injections right into your knee on five consecutive days. After the third day it felt pretty darn good. Kobe Bryant said, `Look, your third or fourth day you actually will start feeling a lot better,’ and he was exactly right. We’re in a no-excuses business. Last year, for me, was a disappointing year. I don’t think there’s one guy that at the end of the year, September, October, November, that’s going to say he’s 100 percent. I just didn’t get it done.”
With spring training beginning ti will be interesting to see if Alex Rodriguez returns to form.
Do you think A-Rod is back on his game for this upcoming season?
