The New York Daily News’ George Rush reports Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was amongst the paramours of the  Manhattan pimpstress accused of providing former NY Gov. Elliot Spitzer with prostitutes.

A-Rod wooed ex-madam Kristin Davis (above) with flowers, jewelry, persistence and heated e-mails, according to the sources.

“Throughout the years, there were a number of clients that I befriended and it was not uncommon for them to want the women they can’t have whether it be the phone bookers or the madam,” Davis said.

“In regard to Alex, all I can say is our paths have definitely crossed personally and professionally.”

Davis met Rodriguez in June of 2006 in a gym in Philadelphia, shortly after she opened a branch of her call-girl service in the City of Brotherly Love, sources said.

Davis told a friend the then-married Rodriguez asked her, “What are you doing tonight?”

The shapely madam didn’t know who A-Rod was but found him “hot as hell,” she told the friend. “I said, ‘I’m having dinner with my boyfriend. But if you’re looking for someone to hang out with, here’s a number.’ I gave him my agency’s card.”

A source said A-Rod confided the pressures he felt as a player.

“He told her that he’d used steroids,” the source claimed. “He said a lot of players did. He just wanted to be a good ballplayer.”

For those keeping score, this is the 3rd or 4th time Rodriguez has been accused in a major publication of either dating or being obsessed with a sex worker. In addition to the Madonna affair, I think it’s pretty clear that not much more P.R. work is required to fully convince NYC sports fans we’re dealing with the most hetero guy of all time.  But if someone wants to dig up paparazzi shots of A-Rod with Mae West or Judy Garland, all the better.
