Something that has kind of slipped under the radar with the success the Yankees have had this season, is the production of one Alex Rodriguez. I recognize that it is still early, but through nearly a month and a half of baseball, A-Rod is sitting at 3 homeruns. He's been driving in runs, and has also hit 2 triples in that time, but this is a considerable dip in power from other seasons. Currently, 5 players on the roster have more homeruns than A-Rod, including Jeter, and the only players with less homeruns than A-Rod are either bench players, injured players, or players named Brett Gardner.
Now I know homeruns aren't the measure of a man, but for A-Rod it kind of is. Especially after the steroid news that broke out last season, and after the whole Tony Galea thing this previous off season. Perhaps A-Rod is just feeling overwhelmed with the whole "march to 600" thing, since he is just 14 homeruns shy of hitting 600 for his career. Perhaps, he's just off to a slower start than usual. The question is, should we be concerned, or is it still too early to worry?
