ARod hits #600!

5 posts in this topic

Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th career home run today at Yankee Stadium! In one of those awesome coincidences, he hit it to dead center, right "into" Monument Park.

Baseball PR can be hysterical. ARod has had a hip problem for some time now. It's clear that he's been protecting that injury all season, which is why his batting numbers aren't anywhere near what he usually puts up.

Over the weekend, however, he hit three home runs in a singe game -- fourth time in his career.

The Yankees batting coach explained that as they were trying to find what was wrong with his 2010 swing, they noticed that ARod wasn't using his hips. I'm sure the timing of this monumental discovery, so close to playoff time, is a coincidence, and that those three home runs have nothing to do with letting this historic slugger loose.

A few years ago, I was at a game where ARod's almost hit for the home run cycle against the once staggering pitcher, Bartolo Colon. (The three runs and one single ARod manage that night added up to 13 RBIs!)
