NYC Most Surprising – Alex Rodriguez
The only player who’ll bring home two awards today will be Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez.
First off, he deserves one of the hitting awards. Secondly, and more importantly, nobody even comes close to touching the shock value that he’s currently producing.
Only in Brian Cashman’s wildest dreams could he have envisioned an A-Rod year like this.
Sure, it’s still early, and at 39-years of age, A-Rod’s season can turn south in a heartbeat. At this moment though, the Yankees will gladly ride his hot bat.
Most have even, and fairly, speculated whether Rodriguez is yet again back on PED’s.
