We wouldn't mind seeing her around town, though.

The Yankees and Madonna can have Alex Rodriguez. Evidenced by last night’s exhilarating 3-2 win over the Angels , the Rangers and their “24 kids” are doing just fine.

You do remember A-Rod telling ESPN Magazine back in ’04 that he would’ve never signed with the Rangers had he known it was going “to be me and 24 kids.” We’ll take Matt Harrison and Eric Hurley and Ian Kinsler and Max Ramirez and David Murphy, et al, thank you very much.

New York can have the great philanderer.

Last year A-Fraud was caught with a hot blonde in a Toronto hotel. This year, in the midst of a divorce from wife, Cynthia, it’s his two-night stand with a Boston stripper.

And way back in ‘04, if I remember correctly, A-Rod got his freak on at least twice – sans wife – at the Dallas swingers’ club Iniquity.

Whether he’s lying about playing poker in illegal clubs, trying to bitch-slap the ball out of a first baseman’s glove, blaming his dying uncle on another crappy post-season or saying his superfluous night life has nothing to do with him going to counseling, A-Rod always comes off disingenuous.

Best thing about this Rangers’ season: 24 kids. Next best thing: A-Rod is no longer on the payroll.-- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
