The year 2006 has seen a rough couple of months for Álex Rodríguez, or at least as tough as it can be for someone who will gross $25,680,727 playing baseball this year before incentives and endorsements. With no game to play today, here´s hoping he stays far away from the newspapers and the TV and enjoys the day-off on the first day of his 31st year on the planet. He has earned it, hitting his 451st career home run last night, more than anyone else in the history of the game by that age.
The Babe hit 405 home runs after turning 31. What’s the over-under on how many ARod will get from here on out? Will most of them be as a Yankee?
