I am not totally convinced that this is New York Yankees‘ designated hitter Alex Rodriguez‘s final game on the baseball diamond. He will take his final walk up to the batter’s box in pinstripes. But with him just being four home runs away from 700 and not having enough opportunities to get there, you can’t really think that this will be his final game.
His emotional press conference last week was great and on point. Many still think Rodriguez is A-Fraud and you could be right. He may have tricked a country into thinking that he was walking away for good. There’s just that little feeling that he’s not.
Rodriguez is the ultimate competitor proven by the fact that the Biogenesis scandal tarnished his playing career. He really didn’t need to do any performance-enhancing drugs. He was the best player coming out of high school in 1994. He wanted to get even better than that and completely destroyed his legacy.
In his mind, Rodriguez must be thinking 700 all the way to try and break from the scandal that cost him an entire season. He’s playing for a team right now that apparently wasn’t in to giving farewell tours. OK?! He will find at least one team that will help him get to 700 and take all the baggage that he brings with him.
This is the end of Rodriguez in Yankee Stadium, but his career isn’t over just yet. There’s still a lot of baseball to be played.
