Once again, Alex Rodriguez has found himself in hot water for his choice of words.
In the latest episode of the “Kay-Rod Cast,” ESPN’s alternative broadcast for “Sunday Night Baseball,” Rodriguez used a questionable analogy while discussing a baseball technique.
Despite the potential controversy, Rodriguez continued with a convoluted analogy that left fans feeling uncomfortable and forced.

This incident is just one in a string of recent blunders for Rodriguez, leading to backlash from fans who find his attempts at creativity and description to be inappropriate.
It’s not the first time this month that Rodriguez has made headlines during a television appearance.
At the MLB All-Star Game, Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr. revealed that Rodriguez had angered him in the 2001 Midseason Classic when Rodriguez, then 25 years old, asked Ripken to switch back to shortstop, thinking it was a classy gesture.
The “Kay-Rod Cast” premiered in 2022 and combines Rodriguez’s insights from his playing career with Kay’s extensive broadcasting experience.
Kay, who enjoys causing mischief, had previously expressed his desire to bring on controversial guests to provoke Rodriguez.
He even mentioned considering inviting people from Rodriguez’s past, including former romantic partners, to create a more intriguing dynamic on the show.
