Alex Rodriguez has certainly made some interesting choices lately.

First, he dealt with the media firestorm surrounding his positive test for performance-enhancing substances. Then, he let the cousin who allegedly injected him with said substances pick him and Nick Swisher up from a spring training game.

But, perhaps most strange his who he turned to for career advice: Katie Couric.

On the Late Show with David Letterman Monday, Couric said she was speaking to Rodriguez frequently when he opted out of his contract in 2007, trying to convince him to do a 60 Minutes interview. At one point, Rodriguez called to ask her, What team do you think I should play for?

Katie Couric? Really? Was Connie Chung otherwise indisposed?

Would there be anything that comes out regarding A-Rod that surprises you at this point?
