Never thought there would come a day when America’s baseball fans collectively didn’t care about a player reaching the 600 homerun milestone. It sorta happened with Ken Griffey Jr. and now it’s definitely happening to Alex Rodriguez, who is one homerun shy, after last night, of something only six (SIX!) people have done in the history of the game.
Of course two of those people (Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa) most definitely cheated their way to get their and Alex Rodriguez also comes under suspicion.
When Albert Pujols comes close will people care? Because Pujols is the best player of this generation. Which, at the start of A-Rod’s unlikeable career, seemed impossible.
