Alex Rodriguez has done a lot to rehabilitate his image since retiring, but one of his contemporaries isn't buying it.

"Kudos to him on his career after baseball and what he's done for people," four-time All-Star Paul Lo Duca told Moose and Maggie on WFAN 660. "But, I'm sorry, I'm not a fan and never will be. I think he's one of the fakest people out there. ... The way he gets put on a pedestal now is beyond me."

Rodriguez has become one of the most popular ESPN broadcast analysts since he walked away from the game. He's become a regular member of the Sunday Night Baseball booth alongside play-by-play man Matt Vasgersian.

Rodriguez weighed in on the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal during a spring training broadcast, saying the team "earned whatever comes (its) way."
