Alex Rodriguez is “working out like a fiend”
Is A-Rod in . . . The Best Shape of His Life?
“This” being the latest furor we discussed this morning.
I still have no idea if a 39-year-old can play effectively after a year layoff. It’s possible he can’t. And it’s possible (probable) that this story is a function of people close to A-Rod trying to focus the story back to baseball on the day news hit about him. Which, heck, is an improvement over A-Rod’s past p.r. efforts, which were akin to dumping kerosene on a flame.
But I really do think that people’s heads will ‘asplode - maybe even literally -- if Rodriguez shows up to spring training in great shape and can actually be a useful ballplayer next year. I’m not sure anyone will know quite how to process it.
