Relish these responses
From the Page 2 mailbag

When Page 2 received the photo below over its newswires, we immediately had questions.

Sure, we recognized that it was Texas Rangers shortstop Alex Rodriguez running in the outfield after a spring-training game. But we felt that A-Rod was trying to send us some type of message. What could the $252 million man be trying to say?

We asked our loyal readers to interpret the message, and, as usual, you came through. Here are some of the best responses we received.

"They told me this contract would have me running with the big dogs, but this ain't what I had in mind."

Buying the Texas Rangers ... $250 million.

Signing Alex Rodriguez ... $252 million.

Having a hot dog that big ... priceless.

Josh Murray

You see! I'm not the biggest hot dog in the world!

With a $252 million price tag, will A-Rod cut the mustard in Arlington?

You'd think that for $252 million, they could at least have filet mignon painted on the wall behind him.

After signing the $252 Million Dollar contract, A-Rod thinks he needs to buy a Ballpark...frank that is.

"Its a dog-eat-dog world. A-Rod is the pit bull, and MLB is wearing Milkbone underwear."

Further proof that athletes tend to "dog" it after signing a big contract.

The wurst is yet to come for A-Rod.
