A-Rod fights fatigue by lighting it up with Hudson

According to the Palm Beach Post:

Benched for alleged “fatigue,” slumping New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez partied until 2:30 a.m. Saturday in Miami Beach. He then disappeared into the tropical night with actress Kate Hudson in the back seat of his chauffeured Maybach.

And while it’s pretty obvious A-Rod and Hudson are an item, the third baseman wasn’t too fatigued to continue pretending otherwise. Indeed, it must be a coincidence that Hudson, the star of Almost Famous and Fool’s Gold, is in Miami just as Rodriguez’s New York Yankees are playingthe Florida Marlins in SoFla this weekend.

And it must be another coincidence that they “ran” into each other at a private partyon SoBe late Friday.

And also blind luck they both ended up in A-Rod’s set of wheels about 2:30 a.m., even if they left the fiesta 15 minutes apart, a spywitness tells me.

I hope he wasn’t fatigued for the after party with Hudson.  I highly doubt Albert Pujols would be doing the same thing if he were hitting .200.
