Putin To Offer A-Rod Asylum

Aug 8, 2013

Moscow - President Vladimir Putin has offered embattled New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez political asylum in Russia, eTrueSports has learned.

Rodriguez, who is facing suspension from American baseball and is reported to be the target of a U.S. federal criminal prosecution for witness tampering and obstruction of justice, is expected to join the iconic Moscow Red Bears of the Russian Baseball League.  

"Baseball was invented in Russia," said Putin. "This just feels so right."

"Take a jacket," MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, a frequent Rodriguez critic, is said to have told the aging slugger in what was characterized as a "very brief" personal call.

Hey Jelly, "Snitch Hitter" (a NY Daily News headline) is wonderfully entertaining but thinking here is that "Delusional narcissist" will be the description remembered by history.

Don't believe Snitch Hitter's are allowed in Russian baseball.

Hearsay, Snowden, talked to Alex! . R. Doyugela, tweeted and then quickly retracted the alleged conversation. "I don't  know why my cell phone is such a conduit?"," followed by" I know nothing of e-sports true network." This was all the Russian artist said or we can report. The true fans could already read the conversation had occurred when the brave player came to the plate amidst the loud boos, few cheers and the cameras took their close up(he knew it would happen), for the last three loser games. He stepped up to  try and hit a ball, he has too. Yankees battle and being 111/2 out, certainly it will be an up ~hill, for all of 'em.  It's not a bad idea to learn another language.
