Alex Rodriguez. AROD. AROID. Cheater. ALEX! ALEX! ALEX. Whatever you want to refer to him as, you really can’t be blamed.
We all know the story, Alex Rodriguez was busted for using PED’s (performance enhancing drugs). He was suspended for all of the 2014 season because of it.
Then came the current 2015 season. What can we expect from Alex. An okay season, a subpar season, or a season where he hits his 24th HR on his 40th birthday, on July 27. Yes, that’s right, TWENTY FOUR HR’s for the now 40 year old. He is a big reason why the New York Yankees are an AL East best, 57-42. He’s batting .279 with 60RBI, to go along with the 24 bombs.
It’s without question that he certainly isn’t cheating this season, so why aren’t people ready to forgive him? I understand that no one likes a cheater, but Rodriguez has done nothing but say and act the right way in 2015. Maybe I forgave him because I am a Yankees fan, or maybe I just forgave him just to forgive him.
Also. it is without question that Alex should have been an American League All-Star. Whether he was voted in by the fans or the AL manager, Ned Yost, the manager for the World Series threat Royals.
Keep doing you, Alex, and nothing would say, “take that, haters” more than bringing the Yankees championship number 28.
