Alex Rodriguez, New York Yankees
Alex Rodriguez wont see a baseball field again until at least 2015. When the Yankee third basemen does return to the game, it’d be dope if he did so by taking a nod from former XFL (NFL) player Rod Smart and wearing “He Hate Me” on the back of his pinstriped jersey.
Rodriguez might be the most awkward sports icons of his generation. Behind his often detached demeanor, he’s has never truly given fans or the media the opportunity to understand who he is. That (seemingly) calculated distance has come with a price: public disfavor.
