NEW YORK (AP) — The owner of a Brooklyn bodega named after New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez says he'll change the store's name as more and more customers complain about the beleaguered baseball star.
Owner Ricardo Rodriguez tells the Daily News (http://nydn.us/1aAs44e ) Saturday that customers have been kvetching about the name of his store, A-Rod Grocery.
The establishment was called Pena Grocery until Rodriguez renamed it 13 years ago in honor of the then-Seattle Mariners slugger.
But now Rodriguez, who is not related to three-time MVP, says he's sick of listening to all the griping about the third baseman. Rodriguez is playing while he appeals a 211-game suspension for violating baseball's drug agreement and labor contract. On Wednesday the slugger said he was stopping all non-baseball talk after a wild weekend of off-the-field drama.
