A-Rod Making Legitimate History.....Get Over It!

Very few men in the history of America's game have done what Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is about to do. We use the term "exclusive club" when talking about players who accomplish certain

feats in the sport of baseball, and for stat geeks like you and me its easy to make a stat than use one that has been used historically. The career home run record is not nearly the "exclusive club" it once was
because some individuals made some poor personal decisions which affected the way we look at stats in our game.

In fact the career home run leader is an admitted user of steroids and could face trial next year on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice as it relates to the US Government's investigation of BALCO.

Not nearly the hero he should be and baseball wanted/needed him to be.

However I find interesting the way baseball fans are looking at Alex Rodriguez' run to history as he sits at 599 home runs for his career. Does baseball fans not care about their history anymore because of a few bad apples?
