LOVE HIM HATE HIM HE IS STILL THE BEST PLAYER IN BASEBALL. HAVING 553 HOME RUNS FOR 3 DIFFERENT TEAMS AND STILL NOT WIN IT ALL THAT TELL YO SOMETHING ABOUT A PLAYER.  I HAVE HERD IN MANNY PLACES WHERE I HAVE WATCH A YANKEES GAME THAT HE PLAYS FOR HIS NUMBERS NOT FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME.. THE MOST PLAY PLAYER IN THE GAME AND STILL NOT HAVING A RING TELLS YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT THE TEAM SUCCESS IN THE LAST 3 SEASON.

OK THEIR IS NO I IN TEAM AND ONE PLAYER DOESN'T PLAY EVERY POSITION OR BATS EVERY SINGLE TIME AT THE PLATE BUT WHEN IT COMES TO A-ROD THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEM SELVES....

THE LAST 3 SEASON PRIOR 2008  A-ROD IN PIN STRIPS:

WELL I KNOW THEY ARE SOME GOOD NUMBERS AND ANY TEAM WILL PAY ANYTHING TO HAVE A PLAYER LIKE A-ROD IN THEIR TEAMS BUT DO PEOPLE PREFER NUMBERS OVER A CHAMPIONSHIP. I KNOW I DON'T YOU KNOW HOW MUCH RESPECT AND HONOR YOU WOULD GET BY JUST WINING A CHAMPIONSHIP IN A CITY, I KNOW IF THE CHICAGO CUBS WIN THE WORLD SERIES THAT ZAMBRANO WILL BE HONOR BY THE FANS IN CHICAGO. LOOK AT THE CHICAGO BULLS THEY EVEN PUT A STATUE OF MICHEL JORDAN IN FRONT OF THE ARENA BECAUSE HE WON 6 RINGS THERE. NOT TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM A-ROD HES GREAT BUT THE YANKEES HAVEN'T BEEN THIS BAD SINCE 93, THEY MISS THE PLAYOFF FOR THE 1ST TIME IN OVER A DECADE, THEY HAVE SEEN THE BOSTON RED SOX WIN THE ALCS IN THEIR HOME TURF AND THEN WIN IT ALL IN 2004 AFTER BEEN UP 3 GAMES TO NONE. IS OBVIOUS THAT HE WOULD NEVER WIN A CHIP, AND NOT POINTING FINGERS AT HIM BUT I SURE BLAME HIM FOR THE LACK OF PLAY THE YANKEES HAVE SHOWN IN THE LAST 4 YEARS.

 BEFORE ALEX ARRIVAL IN NEW YORK THE YANKEES MADE IT TO THE PROMISE LAND 6 TIMES IN A 8 YEARS SPANNED AFTER GETTING A-ROD THE YANKEES HAVEN'T SEEN THE WORLD SERIES IN 4 YEARS SO TELL  ME PEOPLE WOULD U TRADE ALEX RODRIGUEZ FOR A TRIP TO THE WORLD SERIES.
