A-Rod Denies Gambling, Announces Yard Sale

Aug 3, 2011









Slugger anticipates suspension will hurt income

NEW YORK - Anticipating a dramatic income downturn due to suspension, Alex Rodriguez announced he would host a series of Sunday open house tag sales at his Miami mansion during October.

“If I can't play baseball in autumn, there's nothing I'd rather be doing than selling branded A-Rod memorabilia in a comfortable garage setting,” explained Rodriguez.

RadarOnline.com reported on Wednesday that Rodriguez participated in at least two 2009 high-stakes, underground poker games complete with cocaine, millionaires and bad blood.

"When's the World Series of Poker start?" Rodriguez asked one reporter before a worried public relations agent moved him into a waiting limousine.
