Cynthia Rodriguez responds to Yankee fans

Being a major league baseball player's wife can be so rough. There are so many decisions that need to be made. How to properly budget and spend the millions of dollars your husband makes each season. What to do while your husband is away on those 12-game road trips. And do you worry about what your husband is doing away from the ballpark on those road trips?

And what about fashion? Certainly you don't want to arrive at the ballpark looking like you are wearing your husband's money.

What's the best ballpark fashion strategy?

To blend in, of course:

July 2, 2007 -- Oh, no, she didn't!

Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez's long-suffering wife, Cynthia, may have finally flipped her pretty lid yesterday when she went to a game in The Bronx wearing a tight-fitting, white tank top bearing a foul message on the back: "F- - - you."

The obscene phrase was plainly visible to thousands of fans - including plenty of kids - as she, her 2-year-old daughter, Natasha, and an older woman took their seats in the players' family section of the House that Ruth Built.

So what's the big deal? Have you ever been to Yankee Stadium? Ever been to New York? If those seven letters bother you, it's best to avoid the Bronx altogether, let alone spend $80 for a ticket to a Yankees game.

Cynthia's F-word faux pas also may have violated Yankee Stadium policy.

The team's policy prohibits any banners or signs that are not in "good taste" and also warns that security guards will eject any guests "using foul language" or "making obscene gestures."

Hah! That's a joke. If that were the case, the right field bleachers would be empty for every game.

Cut the lady some slack. I am guessing she felt it would be easier to have her response to heckling Yankee fans pre-printed on her back after her husband booted a ground ball or popped up.
