  • Alex Rodriguez - official thread

    A-rod does not have his own thread so I figured I might as well make one.

    Alex's stats: http://www.baseball-reference.com/r/rodrial01.shtml

    Born July 27, 1975 in New York, NY


    here Alex is ahead in a poll for "Best 20 year old". http://www.baseball-fever.com/showth...driguez+thread

    How is a comparison thread supposed to be anything like an individual player thread? I'm lost on the intent of what goes on here in the History section. Perhaps it could be explained.

          ARod's a great player and all...but those frosted tips have to GO!

          There's no frosted tips in baseball!!! As Ty Cobb said, baseball ain't no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out -- or at least stop getting foo-foo hairdos!

              It got me thinking by the time he retires A-rod could hold several major career records in HRs, Runs, RBI and Total Bases with perhaps 3,600,3,700 career hits. Plus he also has a good shot at the career strikeout record if you can believe that. He's #39 all-time right now. With 91 Ks in '08 he moves all the way up to #21. By the end of the '09 season he'll break into the top 10.

                  I don't think they will play long enough or in as many games to catch A-Rod. A-Rod debuted at age 18, is incredibly durable, plays in 150 games per season like clockwork, and averages around 120-130 K pers season as well. Look at Jim Thome. He's a strikeout machine, is almost 38 and, still isn't that close to Reggie's mark.

                    What matters is how many outs you are making, not the shape of those outs. All else being equal, a player with a lower OBP is a less valuable player even if he strikes out less.

                      It just ironic that A-Rod will probably get the strikeout record. He does strikeout a fair amount but he is not a strikeout machine like Thome, Dunn, Howard, etc. A-Rod's career high is 139 Ks. He had 120 K in '07.
                      dunn is at 1092 at age 28

                      give him 10 more years of 150 K and he's got the record

                        That's assuming he plays 10 more years. I seriously doubt Dunn will last past age 35-36. At least not as a starter. I can see A-Rod playing regularly as a 40 year old.
