Mets Using Lady Gaga to Promote Star Player David Wright

Lady Gaga's visit to The Mets' Citi Field caused a stir when she flipped off photographers and wore a skimpy outfit. All the press about the pop star taking in a ball game has show no signs of dying down, since the Mets are using her visit to help market third baseman David Wright, who is the team's star player, according to The New York Times.
On Wednesday, the Mets will host a "Mets Fans Go Gaga for Wright" promotion in which the first 20,000 spectators will receive a blue foam finger encouraging fans to use "the right finger" –get it, the "Wright" fingers- to click online and vote for David Wright as the National League's starting third baseman in the All-Star Game on July 13 in Anaheim, California.
I think I like Gaga's version of the finger, better. Even though she was at a Mets game, Gaga is a Yankees fan, too. She was seen at Yankee Stadium on Friday night. She didn't create as much of a scene as she did at Citi Field, but she reportedly met with Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano.
Do you think Gaga should follow in the footsteps of Madonna and start dating A Rod?
