Alex Rodriguez One Away from Home Run 660

Once again, Alex Rodriguez is nearing history. And once again, it would seem that no one cares.

After hitting home run number 659 of his career on Sunday night, Alex Rodriguez sits just one shy of Willie Mays on the all-time home run list. But more importantly, A-Rod is just one blast away from collecting a six million dollar contract bonus.Rodriguez

However, it’s the money that has more people talking than the actual record that Rodriguez is approaching. For any other player, fans would be buzzing with excitement for a current player to surpass an all-time great on the home run list. But with A-Rod, he doesn’t exactly have too many people on his side.

After serving a 162-game suspension in 2014 for PED use, the few fans that Rodriguez still had finally reached their breaking point with him and wrote him off altogether. But even so, Rodriguez is still surprising some people with the great start he’s gotten off to — myself included.

I knew A-Rod would likely hit his stride at some point, but I figured it wouldn’t add up to a whole lot. It’s been nearly five years since A-Rod hit his 600th homer, and it was nearly certain that he would be a bit sluggish with his swing. But Rodriguez has gone out there and done his best to prove everyone wrong, and he has done just that, blasting five homers to this point in the season.

It’s yet to be seen how many home runs Alex Rodriguez will finish out the season with, or, for that matter, how many he will end up with when his career has drawn to a close. But what is for certain is no matter how much fans dislike him, no matter how much they wish to see him fail, there will always be a small part of everyone that keeps them coming back to see how A-Rod performs on any given night.

For some reason, people just can’t get enough.
