I Have To Weigh In On A-Rod…

An article by posted on October 29, 2007

I think Alex Rodriguez is probably the best player I have ever seen play in the last 10-15 years. That being said, I implore Mets fans not to get blinded by A-Rod’s amazing stats… A-Rod is a ‘me first" type player who would not add anything to the Mets clubhouse. The Mets had plenty of problems […]
