Suspended New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is going through a stressful time. Of course, it’s pretty self-inflicted, but stress is stress.

How people handle adversity in life is different. Some drink. Some exercise. Some eat.

And judging by a recent photo of A-Rod, I think we might have an idea as to what he’s been doing.

Rodriguez was recently in Florida and was kind enough to pose for a fan (or two), though looked noticeably larger in the photograph.

Now, if you look hard enough at A-Rod’s gut, it appears almost as if he has some type of manbag under his shirt. Now, granted, he still looks pretty stocky in the neck area, but what the hell is up with the stomach? If it is a bag, why is he wearing it under the shirt? And if so – where the hell is the shoulder/neck strap? Or does he have some type of an alien gut now?

Even A-Rod’s man purse is a mystery.

Still – purse or not, A-Rod appears to have plumped when cooked.

See what I did there? Somebody give me a rim shot. Wait. Shot? Crap. Poor word choice there.
