Yesterday afternoon Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez completed a feat that only 6 men in MLB history has done before. He hit his 600th career HR. By the nature of sports this made top news around the news of sports and was the most publicized story of the day (as it should be). But when hearing the reaction and analysis from different sports writers and commentators I was shocked to hear that the main reaction was "Big Deal" *sarcasm included*. How could something that has only been done 6 times in history before and not even in your lifetime not be a big deal to you. I don't know if they all have something personal against A-Rod or just don't give anyone affiliated with steroids the day and time but like him or not this is something that needs to be recognized. We are in a baseball generation where offensive numbers have gone down significantly but yet we are still witnessing history. People believe that all hits and HR's hit while on steroids should be scratched, well if that is the case then A-Rod would have still hit #600 at some point in his career. What makes me so frustrated about all this is that MLB puts players like Pujols and Longoria on a pedestal when they're numbers will never touch Rodriguez'. Why? Because they're clean? They're clean because they entered the league later than A-Rod not because of their integrity. Pujols is not some baseball god but just another great player. But because MLB advertises him the way they do casual fans are force to think he's the stepping stone of baseball. It's sad really that a man is on pace to break one of baseball's highest honors but isn't even mentioned for the Hall Of Fame. Congrats to you Alex Rodriguez, you've reached a monumental milestone that should be celebrated and aesteric or not if you do become the all-time leader in Home Runs you should not only be in the HOF but be considered as the greatest of all-time.
