Fates of Alex Rodriguez, Yankees Could Be in the Hands of Spider-Man

The Yankees’ shot at winning a World Series in 2011 depends on the performances of CC Sabathia, Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira and Spider-Man.

Spider-Man, in this instance, is Tobey Maguire, the 36-year-old actor who played the superhero in three films (cleverly titled Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3), which grew increasingly worse as the series went along. To help ease the pain of being in such movies, Maguire played a little high-stakes poker.

Alex Rodriguez, as was reported earlier this year, was apparently a part of at least one of those games. So, too, were Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio. Major League Baseball, which warned Rodriguez years ago about his involvement in such activities, was none too pleased and plans to investigate the situation.

Maguire could be the focal point of that investigation, as he’s facing a lawsuit and is due in court in January 2012. He just may got a call from MLB before then, and the Yankees better hope Spider-Man has all the right answers.
