Back to the Future: Has Alex Already Hit HR 500?

The best article of the year, from Alan Schwarz. To summarize: if Alex connects for a Big McFly in the last few innings of tonight’s resumed game in Baltimore (and he will have at least one at bat), his home run on Wednesday, previously no. 499, becomes no. 500. Also, Dr. Emmett Brown will be dropping him off at the ballpark in a Delorean.

  • Would it add to the irony if the ball pitched to Alex for his 500th was clocked at 88 mph?
    “This is heavy..”

  • >>>if Alex connects for a Big McFly
    Or, as Sterling calls them on WFAN, “an A-Bomb from A-Rod!!!!!!!!!!”
    That guy seems to pitch his broadcasts to 8-year-old listeners. (“Georgie juiced one,” “The Gi-am-bi-no!”, etc.)

  • If I hear “A-Bomb for A-Rod” one more time, I might need a new TV.
