So who was that blond?

The guy's got brass and really has no reason to rail.

He appears to have been caught blond handed!

"Did he get past third base?" yells one fan at the Rogers Centre last night. "Maybe it was a home run?"

But who really knows what went on there with that bat girl. Maybe she's his aerobics instructor? Doing close protection security or even his fan club president? Perhaps she was arranging a tee time or organizing a birthday party for his wife and child back in New York? Could it be she was from Major League Baseball to administer one of those random steroid tests?

"They say you only need one look to tell," jokes comedian Frenchie McFarlane.

Yes, there must be a million reasons that busty beauty could have been going up the elevator in The Four Seasons Sunday night with baseball star Alex Rodriguez.

The gossip loving world wants to know. But the Yankee slugger is not talking. And so far neither is she.

Neither seemed to be hanging around Toronto's famous Brass Rail last night. And our own intrepid reporter Jack Boland spent a lot of time in there looking for them too. Lips are sealed around there, he reports.

But Sunday night it was a different story according to yesterday's New York Post. It seems they ended up there after some fine dining at Harbour 60 and then back to Four Seasons -- not even the Yankees hotel.

Sources last night whispered that her name could be Jocelyn and she could hail from Las Vegas.

Whoever she is, the mystery blond has all of New York buzzing and A-Rod heading for cover.

"I have absolutely no comment about anything personal," he told the Sun's Mike Zeisberger at the Rogers Centre. "Having said that, I don't think it will be a distraction to our team."

Yeah sure.

Even his manager Joe Torre was concerned and met with Number 13 before the game.

"I think (it does cause a distraction)," Torre told Zeisberger. "People seem to think those types of things are of interest to people. When you are in New York, there are so many things people talk about (the team) other than baseball."

Did you see that front page of the New York Post yesterday? Classic. "Stray-Rod, Alex hits strip club with mystery blond."

Maybe his wife is a Times reader.

For his part A-Rod seemed to be taking it all in stride. The Yankees cancelled batting practice, to which one fan yelled out "he's had enough batting practice this week already."

But the third baseman did not duck fans -- even waving at some who were calling out his name as he worked out with Yankee star Derek Jeter.

In the meantime a lot of guys were thinking what Matt Palmer of Dearborne, Mich. told Boland. "What an idiot. Why didn't he send her to the hotel in a cab ahead of him instead of getting photographed with her?"

At first the fans were not to hard on him chorus of A-Rod Sucks erupted after he tricked the Jays rookie first baseman by yelling "mine" on a pop fly.

"I think he said she's mine," jokes Zeisberger.

The OntheDL web site last night was reporting a woman and a one-year-old baby have seen seen in cities where the Yankees have been this year.

Throughout the Rogers Centre I kept looking for the girl but had no luck.

"He can't have her," Luke Kasprzak teased of A-Rod looking over at his girlfriend Elaine Nish, whose blondelocks were covered up with a Jays cap.

"Maybe she changed her hair colour," yells one fan pointing to a beauty seated in another section.

But 20 rows up Jessica Thompson didn't turn out to be her either.

The search continues as the Yankees head to Boston. Can you say Blond Wig Night at Fenway?
