Something To Think About... [A.J. Cordi]

Remember in 2006 when almost all of New York was booing Alex Rodriguez? Remember how he made error after error and only seemed to hit the ball when the Yankees were winning? Look at how things have changed for 2007...

A-Rod Monday night hit home runs number 13 and 14, tying the major league record for homers in April. A-Rod, the present MLB Hitting Triple Crown Leader, is also on pace to break both the home run and RBI record.

Wouldn't ya know it... everything's backwards now! A-Rod is doing good and the Yankees are doing bad. Well, it's not fair to single out the entire team. The main reason they are losing is because the injury bug contaminated their starting pitchers. But thinking overall, look at how things have changed.

The real question now is whether or not A-Rod will accept the role as a Yankee, or turn on the team. There's no telling if he will opt out of his contract and sign with the Cubs. There's also no telling whether he will opt out and demand more money to re-sign.

However, I think it's safe to say that A-Rod will remain a Yankee for now. After all, he's finally beginning to smile.
