A-Rod Returns, Are Yanks Better?

August 22, 2011
The Yanks got A-Rod back from his 38 game absence due to knee surgery, and even though he is still a great player, the question must be asked: Are the Yankees a better team without A-Rod?  They did go 25-13 in his absence, and Eduardo Nunez adds an energy to their lineup that A-Rod does not. With A-Rod back in the fold, Nunez and his youthful legs sit.  A-Rod went 0 for 5 yesterday, check out his 2011 statistics here:

Who will be 29th to hit 3000?

July 11, 2011

As we’ve all heard by now, Derek Jeter became the 28th member of the 3,000-hit club. Rather than writing about Jeter’s stats, accomplishments, future, etc., etc. (you’ve heard it all already), let’s turn our attention to predicting the 29th member of the elite club. Currently, the next players in line to reach 3,000 hits are as follows: Ivan Rodriguez of the Nationals (2,842 hits), Omar Vizquel of the White Sox (2,831 hits), and Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees (2,762 hits). Taking into consideration Vizquel’s age and that “I-Rod” is currently on the DL, my prediction is that “A-Rod” will be the 29th member.  Interestingly, this would make him and Jeter the first pair of teammates to reach 3,000 hits while playing on the same team.

Lets see how Alex Rodriguez and the others are performing this year
