ALEX RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

Report: Alex Rodriguez won’t retire early or accept buyout

With the 40-year-old Alex Rodriguez scuttling mightily at the plate this season, the idea has been forwarded that perhaps he conceivably could decide to take an early retirement or perhaps even accept a buyout from the New York Yankees. Evidently, neither of those scenarios are ever going to happen, according to someone in A-Rod’s camp. FanRag Sports Network’s Jon Heyman writes...

This Might Be the End for Alex Rodriguez

Two opposing things can be true, I believe. Superstar players are probably the last to know when they’ve come to the end of the line. Declines can be so gradual they’re tough to detect if you’re just taking things day by day. If you listen to the players, they’ll insist they remain capable, even after they’re probably not. On the other side of the coin, no one loves to...

Ken Griffey Jr. once pranked A-Rod in disturbing fashion

By the time Alex Rodriguez reached the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners during the 1994 season, Ken Griffey Jr. already was an established superstar and one of the leaders of the team. This apparently granted Griffey the right to haze the then-18-year-old in spectacularly hilarious but also somewhat disturbing fashion. The hazing ritual, as regaled in a profile of Griffey...

Alex Rodriguez’s hamstring seems to be attached to his eyes

In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...
