What do we do about A-Rod?
Huffington Post - 06/25/2015
Alex Rodriquez has returned to play for the New York Yankees with a flourish. Exiled from baseball for a full year based on his proven use of performance-enhancing drugs, A-Rod was not supposed to be able to rejuvenate at 39. (He will be 40 in a few weeks.) Yet he is among the club’s leaders with 15 home runs, 69 hits and 44 RBI for a Yankees team near the top of the division standings. Many thought that his disciplinary layoff would be the finishing blow to a career that, in recent years, has been filled with well-earned opprobrium. Perhaps A-Rod’s apparent rejuvenation is the product of diminished expectations, but he is performing as good as ever.
