As the organization he burst upon the scene with, Rodriguez certainly has a soft spot for Seattle.
If you believe in things coming full circle, he will eclipse 700 home runs with the Mariners. The M’s are currently in contention — two games out of the second AL Wild Card — but can definitely add some depth offensively.
With his consistent power production immediately in question, A-Rod would not play frequently by any means. However, it is nice to entertain the possibility of an old partnership being reunited.
Not for nothing, Safeco Field will sell out night after night with not only a playoff chase but an attempt at history.
