A-Rod Maybe Stay-Rod; Oracle of Omaha Has Two Pals in Rye

Alex Rodriguez may be staying in Rye after all. A-Rod as been renting on Parsonage Point with his wife Cynthia and daughter Natasha Alexander, who turns four years old today. The Rodriguezes are also expecting a second child.

Arod_si_coversA-Rod may be Rye’s own Stay-Rod in part because of the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett. As The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday, A-Rod blew off his agent Scott Boras and called the Oracle to ask for help resuscitating talks with the Yankees:

"…a worried Mr. Rodriguez called Mr. Buffett, say people familiar with the matter. The two had become friends a few years ago, after the slugger flew to Omaha to meet with the investing guru and rabid baseball fan. After that, the two met socially several more times, say the people familiar with the matter. Signifying their mutual admiration, an autographed Rodriguez jersey hangs at Berkshire Hathaway’s Omaha headquarters."

Word is with Warren’s help and some help from Goldman Sachs, A-Rod may walk away with a 10-year, $275 million dollar contract with the Bronx Bombers.

Now just a short drive up Manursing Drive and across Forest Avenue will bring Warren to A-Rod’s waterfront pad on Parsonage Point.

Some real estate agent in Rye is going to make a killing selling A-Rod his house on Parsonage or an equivalent. He is currently renting.
