Thirty-eight years ago today, Alex Rodriguez was put on this Earth to dominate on a baseball field and annoy the hell out of pretty much everyone off it. He’s been in the news for all the wrong reasons of late thanks to Biogenesis and his hip surgery and quad problem and whatever other nonsense is going on, but he’s still provided some amazingly memorable moments in pinstripes. I couldn’t find a decent compilation of A-Rod/Yankees highlights on YouTube, so instead I’ll go with a good ol’ 2009 postseason flashback. That always goes the trick. Happy birthday, A-Rod. Stop being such a turd.
Here is your open thread for the night. MLB Network will air a game tonight, and who you see depends on where you live. Tri-Staters should be the Red Sox at the Orioles. You can talk about whatever you want here, so go nuts.
