First, from Details magazine, which I had never heard of before tonight, an article on Arod. The man. Very interesting. This part made me laugh out loud.
Rodriguez claims he hasn't read the book, but it's clear he's aware of its contents. He says numerous teammates contacted him to express support when it came out. I ask whether he's heard this fabulous revelation from the Torre book: that a Yankee trainer would rub hot liniment on Roger Clemens' testicles just before his starts. "Oh," Rodriguez says, smirking. "I'd heard that. But I didn't witness it."
There's also some juicy withheld on Arod's favorite Madonna song.
Second, from GQ, this article on Lenny Dykstra's post-baseball career is pretty much amazing. Quite the successful lunatic, apparantely.
Good baseball players are sometimes really weird people.
