As the season comes to a close...
A-Rod's team, the Rangers, are already eliminated from the playoffs, but don't let his team's poor play (nonexistent pitching) tarnish your opinion of A-Rod. He recently became the first shortstop to hit 50 HRs in a season. So, I ask you, the baseball fan, what is your opinion of A-Rod now?

He's did a very good job. When a guy breaks the record for home runs in a season by a SS, while hitting over 50 homeruns, i'd say that's a pretty great year.

It's not his faught the Rangers spent over $260 million on him and didnt go after some pitchers; he's just a opportunist. :)

I voted for the last option, just because :P Actually, I think that A-Rod has had a great season, but he needs to have a greater impact on his team. After all, the Rangers still stink. :D

I Like Alex Rodriquez
Alex is cool. 50 homeruns! Best ever for a shortstop. Only he could accomplish that. I don't think Jeter will anytime soon. He earned his pay this year. Well, actually he would have to hit 100 homeruns to earn that pay!:P

Well, I voted for "poor" because he's still has a metal rod in his head ;).

If you make twice as much money as everyone else, should you not be twice as good as anyone else?... Maybe.. maybe not... but that's my opinion.

Okay, okay -- so I just don't like Rodriguez!! -- honestly, putting up major league breaking number for a player at his position is pretty impressive.... but he only did that in HRs, remember. he was pretty good... but I still don't like him! :)
