What if this is the end of Alex Rodriguez’ Yankees career? A-Rod spent nine years in New York. And, that begs the question: Was it worth it (having A-Rod play for the Yankees)?
On one had, you have two MVP seasons – albeit that the last one was self-serving – and a World Series ring (in 2009). But, on the other hand, you have all that A-Rod baggage/drama, the PED issue, what is forming to be one of the ugliest baseball-divorces south of Manny’s exit from Boston, and what’s appearing to be a $100 million cost to have him finish his career with some other team.
Does one side, the good or the bad, out-weigh the other in terms of the Yankees “A-Rod experience”? Or, is it all just a “push”?
Related, if A-Rod does ever get elected to Cooperstown, does this impact what cap should be on his plaque and how he should be remembered in terms of Yankees history?
You tell me…
