After 10 years as a Yankee, did A-Rod Friday night finally win over the fans?

Recently, somebody asked Alex Rodriguez what's it like to hear boos whenever he steps out of a dugout. He said it's nothing new: He's been booed his entire career. He was booed for leaving Seattle. He was booed for costing Texas too much. He was booed for being a Yankee. He was booed for slumping in the playoffs. He was booed for not being Derek Jeter. He was booed for...

WATCH: A-Rod fights back tears during interview

Alex Rodriguez belted the 660th home run of his career on Friday night, and it was a big one. In addition to tying Willie Mays for fourth place on MLB’s all-time home run list, A-Rod gave the New York Yankees a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning of an eventual victory over the Boston Red...Read More

A-Rod hits 660th home run, ties Willie Mays

Alex Rodriguez hit career home run number 660 tonight, in just about the perfect situation. It was an A-bomb from A-Rod as I’m sure John Sterling told his listeners that just barely krept over the Green Monster. Top of the eighth, no outs, tie ballgame against the hated Boston Red Sox. Of course A-Rod would deliver the $6 million home run just like this. Rodriguez took Junichi...

Alex Rodriguez continues to struggle at plate, goes 0-for-6 with 4 Ks

After storming out of the gates at the plate to start the MLB season — a surprise in its own right considering his lengthy layoff — Alex Rodriguez has shockingly crashed back to earth over the past handful of games, culminated by an atrocious game Wednesday night in the New York Yankees’ 3-2 extra-inning loss...Read More The post Alex Rodriguez continues to struggle at plate...

Alex Rodriguez to reporter: ‘It’s been one long boo for 15 years’

Alex Rodriguez had a somewhat terse back-and-forth with a Detroit reporter on Wednesday over the perception that he is baseball’s biggest villain. The New York Yankees slugger mostly blew off the assertion that he is the resident player pariah in Major League Baseball, especially in the wake of his season-long exile last year. Rodriguez instead...Read More The post A-Rod during...

The historical significance of a potential A-Rod resurgence

The Hunt for Alex Rodriguez began early in spring training, and the feel one got from most of the reporting was almost akin to that of a death watch. Expectations were, to put it mildly, quite low, and the potential for theater was very high; the perfect combination for a media firestorm. Well, something very […]

A-Rod exceeding expectations, eluding karmic justice

Alex Rodriguez can just never get it right. He was supposed to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time, but is now a disgraced PED user and cheater whose achievements are all questionable, no matter how impressive they look on a list or spreadsheet. A-Rod could have been the face of baseball, a matinee idol admired by fans of all ages, but his ambition for the biggest...

Alex Rodriguez: Heir to the Empire

“Wrath” and “Man” are, respectively, the first two words of “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey.” The former refers to the anger of Achilles, who stars in the first work, and the latter references the title character of the second epic poem. When it comes to the subject of Alex Rodriguez, especially in New York, the anger of the fans and the Steinbrenner ownership...
