It looks like former New York City mayor and presidential candidate, Rudy Giuliani is rooting for the Yankees, after he felt it was prudent to root for the Red Sox in the World Series.
Now, it looks like he's back to being a Yankee fan.
Asked Sunday how he feels that the New York Yankees and third baseman Alex Rodriguez are on the cusp of finalizing a $275 million, 10-year contract, the Republican presidential candidate broke into a wide smile and said he was thrilled.
"My take on A-Rod? I'm glad to have him back," Giuliani said before watching NASCAR's season-ending Ford 400. "If you give up a player like A-Rod, you've got a lot of rebuilding to do."
Giuliani's affinity for the Yankees is no secret.
So on Sunday, it wasn't exactly a surprise that amid questions on oil prices and push polling, a conversation with Giuliani turned to Rodriguez's pending deal.
"Negotiations are complex in baseball and everyplace else," Giuliani said. "I'm glad it's going to work out the right way. I'm very glad to see that as an American League fan, as a Yankee fan, that we're keeping him in the American League and keeping him on the Yankees. ... Maybe next year he'll have 62 home runs."
Good to know a guy like Rudy knows where his loyalties lie...
