NEW YORK -- Apparently, Alex Rodriguez didn’t get the news release.

Approached by reporters about teammate Andy Pettitte’s retirement Friday, A-Rod had no clue.

“Tell me what happened,” he said.

Reporters then pointed to one of the TVs in the Yankees’ clubhouse, where Pettitte was having a news conference to announce that he was hanging up his cleats at the end of the season.

“What do you want me to say?” A-Rod said before finally answering a couple of questions.

Asked what he thought of Pettitte as a teammate, A-Rod said: “Andy’s just an amazing human being. He’s been an icon on the field, and a world-class friend and teammate, and a leader off the field and here in the clubhouse as well.

“Just one of the greatest all-time winners.”

Yeah. It’s just A-Rod being A-Rod.
