3:19PM EDT October 16. 2012 -- Alex Rodriguez has been repeatedly striking out and playing so poorly lately that he's been dropped in the batting order and was even taken out of the Yankees' lineup on Saturday in an ALCS game vs. the Detroit Tigers.

While A-Rod's game at the plate has been abysmal, that didn't stop the highest-paid Yankee from working on his game with the ladies.

According to a New York Post report, unnamed witnesses at Game 1 of the ALCS claimed Rodriguez was clearly flirting with two female fans who were sitting close to the Yankees dugout after he was taken out in the eighth inning.

"I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby,'' the witness told The Post.

The first question that comes to mind: did he strike out?

Turns out, he's better with the female crowd than he has been making contact with a baseball. He had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their number. Clutch move?

A list of the best quotes from The Post's report:

"Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy,'' the witness explained.

"The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back,'' the witness said.

"One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote . . . on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile.

"They exchanged a few glances after that."

So, instead of rooting on his teammates as they struggled, Rodriguez was getting his flirt on. The flirting supposedly stopped after Derek Jeter was injured.

Still, it's one thing to do this in a regular season game, but in the playoffs? This should definitely add fuel to the fire for frustrated fans.
