Being a New York Yankees fan is very hard nowadays. And if you are Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez, then it is even more difficult. Knowing that A-Rod has spent a considerable time in his career in the Bronx, A-Rod must have been frustrated with the Yankees performance.

Leaving the Yankees performance aside, A-Rod’s personal life has also become a talking point on the internet. Earlier this month, A-Rod’s ex-fiancee, Jennifer Lopez, got engaged to Hollywood superstar Ben Affleck.

Notably, A-Rod and Lopez have dated each other for over four years. But things did not work between the two of them, and later they called it off. However, A-Rod already seems to be moved on from his past with Lopez, but the Yankees vs Red Sox rivalry will not let him move on so quickly.

Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez got one more reason to hate the Boston Red Sox

Being a Yankee, it is natural for A-Rod to not like the Boston Red Sox. But after JLo engaged with Ben Affleck, he has got one more reason to hate the Red Sox. For those who do not know, Ben Affleck is a die-hard Red Sox fan. And with this, Jlo chose a Red Sox fan over a Yankees legend. All of this must have been very frustrating for A-Rod.

If reports are legitimate, then, while shooting for Gone Girl, Ben Affleck refused to wear a Yankees cap. Instead, he chose to wear a Mets cap. Affleck requested the film director David Fincher to not make him wear the Yankees cap. “David, I love you. I would do anything for you,” Ben Affleck said. He added, “But I will not wear a Yankees hat. I just cannot. I cannot wear it because it’s going to become a thing.”

Recently, an old photo has been going viral on the internet. In the picture, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, both are cheering for the Red Sox.
