Alex Rodriguez reached 500 homeruns the fastest out of all hitters in the history of the MLB. He is one of the greatest players to have ever played the game, steroids or not, and he is still in his prime.
Making it seem likely that his current numbers will be even greater than they are now, he is a hall of fame talent, and could be the next home-run king, replacing Barry Bonds.
Five-tool player, who plays his heart out even through rough patches. He is simply one of the best ever to have picked up a baseball bat.
