A-Rod’s Breaking Records, But Is Anyone Noticing? [AUDIO]
A-Rod managed another accomplishment Wednesday, passing Lou Gehrig on the all-time RBI list. Then on Thursday night tied Barry Bonds. But, why did no one notice?
The attention that Rodriguez received around the sports world was relatively quiet, especially in comparison of his recent feat in passing Willie Mays on the all-time home run list.
"Yeah, that was really interesting," said Buster Olney with Armen and Levack on 104.5 The Team. "He sets an all time record for one of the Triple Crown positions. A career RBI and no one noticed.
"I think it’s gonna be the same when he gets these last 19-20 hits before he hits 3000, which sort of speaks to how people view him. It goes back to the question, if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
“It really is an extraordinary record. Since 1920, the only player with more RBI’s is Hank Aaron. That is pretty good company!”
