    He had the best line from the steroid investigation. When he was asked by the doctor what he wanted, his answer was whatever Manny is taking.

    ...In my years in the automobile business I saw many retired Pro athletes buy car dealerships , car leasing companies and other businesses, and lose all their money... because you are good at sports doesn't mean good in business... lots of luck Alex...

    15000 apartments over 13 states would indicate he's no dummy at all. Or at least knows how to select the right kind of advisors.

    ..this is the same Rodriguez that spent about $10 million of his own money fighting MLB after his 3rd steroid test was positive.. advisors are great until the money gets to big..the Mn. twins biggest star Harmon K. lost all his money after his retirement, he bought a car leasing company...what does a baseball player know about buying and renting apts.? Or making and selling Beer?..every one will tell him how smart he is until something happens..

    He is equity partners with two very successful NYC multifamily investors.
    Why are you so negative?

    He was smart enough to get to where he is now. He doesn't need to know much about"real estate "to do this kind of investing. He's not buying a two family house on the burbs and having to go fix a leaking toilet tonight.

    He's buying in with load of money with seasoned operators. His lawyer will do all the talking on every aspect of dealing.He has a feel for the market and he will be well protected BECAUSE his partners it insure it works. There're not going down the toilet.

    As far as beer. He doesn't need to know anything...again. BRANDING is done by experts . Someone. smarter than all of us has determined the mix of A-Rod and beer world as far as BRANDING and they are going to spend a good deal of money to make that work.

    Relax dod and remember it's not you money he's using.

    That joke doesn't work any more. At all.

    And P.S. It's "Fenway Frank."

    Nobody remembers Little Boy Bush....

    Got handed a piece of the Texas Rangers - never needed to lift a finger
    Money fell into his pocket

    These guys are 'window dressing'.... a draw for other investors
    These boys are nowhere near the firing line
