Fenway Park Chants 'We Want A-Rod' in Final Games of Yankees Slugger's Career

From potentially getting traded to the Boston Red Sox to a bizarre play with Bronson Arroyo to brawling with Jason Varitek, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has quite the storied past with his team's archrival.

And yet, in A-Rod's final days in pinstripes, the Fenway Park crowd couldn't help but beg Yankees manager Joe Girardi to send his soon-to-be-former player up to the plate Tuesday night.

"We want A-Rod!" fans chanted in the top of the ninth inning during a possible pinch-hitting opportunity.

In the end, the Boston Red Sox faithful didn't get their wish, as the three-time American League MVP remained on the bench in a 5-3 win for the home club.

Fortunately for those who want to see Rodriguez one last time, the Yankees are in town for two more games.
