Alex Rodriguez says he has noticed the sudden rise of Jeremy Lin, and he has read the stories about how the New York Knicks point guard had nowhere to live. A-Rod’s response: Stop sleeping on your brother’s couch, or your teammate’s couch, and come bunk with me! Per the Associated Press:

“If he’s still looking for a place to crash, maybe he can crash at my apartment,” the New York Yankees star said. “Imagine the tabloids then.” “Linsanity. Wow.”

(We’re beginning to think that Rodriguez enjoys the attention, you know?) Anyway, A-Rod had not heard that Lin recently moved into a new apartment in White Plains, N.Y., just north of the city. But why would anyone want to live in the ‘burbs if you can be roommates with A-Rod in the heart of New York City? There might be some very good reasons, actually.

A-Rod’s life sounds fun and all, hopping from one five-star restaurant to the other with a cooler full of high protein beef, but Lin should be warned. Rodriguez recently moved into a new apartment after flipping his condo at the Rushmore for a big profit. He flipped it for real, like the ruthless profiteer he is. He’s all about maximizing the dollar.

So it makes me wonder: Is A-Rod making this offer out of simple boredom, loneliness or curiosity? Or is he under the impression that Lin makes NBA All-Star money, so he can squeeze A-Rod-sized rent out of him? It seems to me that Lin’s salary is much closer to that of, say, Bubba Trammell than it is Nick Swisher.

There’s no way Lin would be able to afford living with A-Rod if he charged him the going rate — and there’s no way Rodriguez would let Lin slip by for a cut rate. It’s not how he operates.

Curtis Granderson seems like a much better option for Lin if he wants to live with a Yankee for a reasonable amount of money.

Meanwhile, Derek Jeter’s penthouse at Trump Tower remains on the market for $20 million. A-Rod never would have let that happen.
