Like Him Or Not A Rod Is The Comeback Player Of The Year
Look I know...I know Alex Rodriguez is bad, mean and terrible person and we all will hate him forever. HOWEVER do we really hate him anymore? I remember what he did but to my knowledge there is no clause in the "Comeback Player of the Year" award that says the player has to be returning from an injury or morally ok absence.
Alex has not only put together a fantastic statistical season. A Rod hit .250 avg 33 home runs and 86 RBI's. The first time the man has played baseball since since 2013 and hasn't played 150 games in a season since 2007. Put all of that together with the fact that A Rod is the biggest face of performance enhancing drugs since Jose Canseco and some how most people forgave him and invited him to be part of the FOX World Series coverage.
So no disrespect to Prince Fielder but Alex Rodriguez did more this year on the field and in the press then I EVER imagined he could.
