2009 Stats: .305/30/100/0/1
Alex Rodriguez hit a home run in his first at bat upon returning from hip surgery. He managed to hit another 29 home runs in an injury shortened season. More impressively, all of those home runs came against the Red Sox and Angels, making A-Rod the most beloved and clutch Yankee to ever play the game. Alex then went on to carry the Yankees through the first two rounds of the playoffs. Although he only managed six RBIs in the World Series, like a coward. Perhaps Alex's most impressive 2009 stat: 0. The number of steroids he took that year. But the most important stat? 1. The number of hip surgeries performed on Alex Rodriguez in March. Clearly the key to A-Rod finally making something of himself was the hip surgery. It is in his best interest, therefore, to consider having the same procedure done again this Spring.
Alex will hit 35 home runs. In one game. Against the Red Sox. On opening day.
