Alex Rodriguez may have 99 problems, but getting Jay-Z tickets ain't one. And that's even after the rap megastar turned sports agent got A-Rod's ex-New York Yankees infield mate, Robinson Cano, a big ol' contract on the other side of the country.

Here's a photo that A-Rod tweeted of himself having a brotastic time at Thursday night's Jiggman show at the BB & T Center in Florida with fellower MLBers Yonder Alonso of the San Diego Padres and Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles. The connection? They're a bunch of Miami boys. Alonso played his college ball at The U, while Machado and A-Rod are both from Miami.

Orioles fans are like: "Manny, you stay away from that A-Rod fellow. He's bad news." A-Rod seems like a perfect little action figure, even when he's at a Jay-Z show with thousands of people. And Alonso, well it's pretty obvious he's having the best time of them all. Look at that face. Here's another flick that Alonso posted on Twitter. No A-Rod here, though.

Maybe if A-Rod does get exiled from baseball for the next year and a half, he can become a roadie for Jay-Z.
