Alex Rodriguez Offers Posh NY Apartment to Announcer Who Lost Everything In A Fire

alex-rodriguez-pictureAlex Rodriguez, the embattled New York Yankee who missed all of last season under suspension from steroid use, did a good deed that could help him ease his way back into fans’ good graces.

When he learned popular Yankees broadcaster John Sterling had lost everything he owned in a New Jersey fire, Rodriguez immediately called Sterling and offered him use of his luxury Manhattan apartment, according to the New York Daily News.

It was a show of compassion many did not know Rodriguez possessed, as he has been painted in his time with the Yankees as a “phony” and a “cheater.” This gesture, done quietly and revealed only when Sterling shared the information, surely will move the meter for some on how he’s perceived.

The enormous fire in Edgewater, N.J., took out an apartment building and left Sterling homeless..

Of course, a conflict of interest would come into play if Sterling had accepted A-Rod’s offer.

Sterling, the Daily News reported, started out in a hotel before a generous Yankees fan offered a temporary home in Upper Saddle River, N.J. Sterling also received an invitation from Orioles manager Buck Showalter to stay at his apartment in Baltimore, but preferred staying close to New York.

Sterling is staying in a hotel for now and hopes to move into a new apartment that is under construction before spring training.
