TMZ is exclusively reporting that Alex Rodriguez—baseball's Alex Rodriguez—and a lady-friend had lunch at Hooters over the weekend. Soak it in, folks; this is it. This is what rock bottom looks like.

We've confirmed ... A-Rod and a lady friend walked in to the chicken joint in Sarasota, Florida this weekend and went to town on chicken wings.

Hooters sources ... yeah, we got those ... tell us A-Rod and his woman woofed down a total of 20 wings (medium sauce) along with an order of curly fries ... and washed it down with a soda and an unsweetened tea.

Look at that picture, it's still daylight. He probably went there for lunch. Not even dinner, but lunch. This is, by far, the saddest A-Rod news in weeks.
