Alex Rodriguez is back from his suspension and at first some fans and people covering the game were speculating him being terrible. Rodriguez has proved the doubters wrong early and most importantly has a large majority of the Yankee fans behind him. When the season started Rodriguez received the largest ovation and even a role call from the bleacher creatures as the DH. Rodriguez has played mostly DH despite making a start at both first and third. Rodriguez looked a little nervous at first but played a smooth game at third. Rodriguez is currently batting 344 , 4 homers , and 11 RBI. All team highs. Rodriguez has been one of the most productive hitters in baseball. Rodriguez has been the Yankees best offensive player for a good part of his Yankee career. He is doing it again in his age 39 season. The odds of Rodriguez continuing on this pace is not likely but the odds of Rodriguez having a good season look good right now. On Friday night Rodriguez had two home runs and added a game winning single in Tropicana field.
