Alex Rodriguez radio appearance spurs Michael Kay to pay cohost’s mortgage

Yankees play by play commentator and ESPN New York radio host Michael Kay has been tough on Alex Rodriguez. Kay didn’t think there was any chance Rodriguez would ever appear on his show (especially after the surreal A-Rod/Mike Francesa interview from two years ago), and made a bet with his cohost Don La Greca. If Rodriguez appeared on the show as a guest, Kay would pay a month...

With the Yankees in town for a three-game series at Fenway Park, Rodriguez took...

A-Rod's 25th career grand slam earns him new nickname

Sure, there have been seasons with more astronomically high numbers than the 25 home runs and 67 RBIs that A-Rod has tallied through 118 games.
