I’m just a huge A-Rod fan, always will be. He is the greatest player I’ve ever seen, and just look at the dude — He’s Herculean, hits long bombs and is great with younger players. But I understand the media hates him, I do. This article actually wasn’t TOO vicious on Alex, so thx to the author for that…a couple shots were taken, but nothing of the usual variety. And whatever, Alex had a bigtime year LAST year (33 HR 80-somethin RBI) as a true 40 year old. His numbers are locked forever, not many will surpass him, when you look at the entire stat line of his career. But credit to Papi, having a helluva year no question.
