BOSTON -- Alex Rodriguez is at 659 home runs, one behind Willie May for the fourth most in major league history. He's not in the lineup here Friday against the Red Sox at Fenway Park though ... unfortunately. Yes, unfortunately. ...

Rodriguez is one home run from tying Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home run list. Rodriguez is currently at 659, as he’s hit five so this season. Red Sox manager John Farrell […]

()As we surmised a while back, Alex Rodriguez has a good shot of tying and/or breaking the HR mark of Wille Mays at Fenway Park this week-end. The Fraudulent One sits at 659 HRs as he ventures to Boston on Friday night seeking a tie with the "Say Hey" Kid (660). Of course, you couldn't find two more polar opposite players than Mays and A-Fraud—the former being one of the classiest American athletes ever. It would be an unspeakable obscenity if The Centaur were to reach any milestone at Fenway—but this one is particularly galling. Let's hope he turns in an "0 for the series" performance.

I get it: You detest A-Rod and everything he...

Have fans forgiven?
Alex Rodriguez sure knows how to make an entrance. Rodriguez entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the top of the eighth with the game tied at two, and lined a solo homer run into the Monster seats off Junichi Tazawa on a 3-0 pitch, giving the Yankees the lead, and ultimately a 3-2 win […]
Alex Rodriguez’s major league debut came at Fenway Park July 8, 1994, so it was only fitting a milestone home run occurred at Fenway Park as well. Stepping to the plate as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning in a 2-2 game, Rodriguez laced a Junichi Tazawa 3-0 offering into the Monster seats, proving to […]

Now the race to No. 661 begins. “I don’t know if it’ll mean more (than 660),” Rodriguez said. “This whole thing has been kind […] The post Pregame notes: “Get down to normal business now” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
