Rob Shuter reports…. Alex Rodriguez, No. 4 on Major League Baseball’s all-time home runs list, is striking out on ESPN — and the network’s pressuring him to get galpal Jennifer Lopez in the batter’s box!
“Hiring A-Rod for ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ has been a disaster,” an insider told The National ENQUIRER.
“The show is down 18 percent from last season, and producers are hoping Jennifer can save the day.”
“They hired a top media trainer for him, but Alex is just not connecting with viewers.”
Maybe they’re just angry that his pricey J-Lo inspired Limited Edition caps sold out.
