A-Rod Playing High Stakes Poker Again In Pocono Casino

Everyone's Favorite Yankee,  Alex Rodriguez was spotted last Monday in a high-stakes gaming room at the Mohegan Sun Casino in the Poconos, sources told The Post.

The injured third baseman was in Pennsylvania to play rehab games with the minor league Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

A-Rod showed up at the casino at about 8 p.m., workers told The Post.

He had a steak dinner and then entered a special high-roller gaming room with two pals, according to workers.

"There are mostly slots and blackjack tables in the high limits room," the blackjack dealer said, noting that the room is often set up with a special table for big-time gamers to play poker.

Another card dealer at the Wilkes-Barre, Pa., casino saw the Yanks slugger enter the high-stakes room.

Star-struck Poconos gamblers tried to chat A-Rod up as he passed through the casino, but witnesses said he and his pals did not want to be hassled by patrons.

"I saw a few women approach his entourage to get a picture with him but they were turned down and told to 'Keep walking.' It was sad seeing that," she said.

A greeter in the high-limit room saw A-Rod enter and estimated he was there for about two hours.

"They wanted to keep to themselves," the greeter said.

The evening started with dinner at the casino's Ruth's Chris steakhouse.

Jose Reyes Never Felt Tag by A-Rod on play at 3B

Jose Reyes told NY Daily News Reporter Anthony Mccarron that he never felt a tag and A-Rod  played it coy by saying, "I think I just touched a little bit of his sleeve" before later admitting, "Whether I did or not, you guys had a better view than I did."

The sweep of a phantom tag at third base in the seventh inning, the only thing that matters is that Reyes was called out.

Terry Collins was ejected in the heated argument that followed with plate umpire Jerry Layne and the Mets never really had a chance after the play, despite trailing by only two runs at the time.

"We were losing, 3-1, man on third base, less than two out, maybe we score that run and it's a different ball game," Reyes said.

"That's a huge out," Rodriguez said. "A big momentum-changer for us. A big play."
