Yankee PR Fail

To get Yankee fans to embrace A-Rod* the team that brought you the moat, decided it would be a good idea to have players "mingle' with fans in Monument Park before a game.

Meet and greets are scheduled to be held once a homestand, an idea that team spokesman Jason Zillo said originated months ago. A-Rod wanted to be a part of it Tuesday, hoping it would help show he's still a mere mortal, even with his larger-than-life persona.

The PR move didn't help him much as A-Rod* went 0-3 last night bringing his average down to .219 and earning him the Bronx cheer from Yankee fans once again.

and get this: A-Rod* is lending his voice to an animated movie for kids. The film is based on a children's book by Ray Negron who said the following about the project:
"We can give the innocence of the game back to the children," Negron said. "Goodbye steroids, hello grassroots."

So they choose A-Rod* to send this message? Nothing says steroid free and grassroots like A-Rod*. Only in the Bronx.
