For the first time since his season-long suspension, Alex Rodriguez is hitting the road. First stop: Baltimore.
The Orioles host the Yankees for a three game set at Camden Yards and after a warm reception from the fans in New York, A-Rod was greeted with moderate boos in Charm City. We’re not talking Mark Teixeira in Baltimore type boos, a little lighter than that.
Side note: Teixeira has been with the Yankees for seven years now and still hears it every time he steps in the box at Camden Yards.
But back to A-Rod — it always comes back to A-Rod — at least one Orioles fan has decided he’s boycotting the controversial sluggers at-bats. Via Tim Anderson on Twitter:

I’m not sure I understand this one. The Yankees owe Rodriguez at least $64 million over the next three seasons. O’s fans should be hoping he see him on the field every time New York comes to town.
