Alexander Emmanuel "Alex" Rodriguez, commonly nicknamed A-Rod, is a Dominican-American baseball player for the New York Yankees. He has often been cited as the best all-around player currently in baseball, but not in the post season, when it counts.
A-Rod started out the 2007 season and became the ninth major leaguer, and first Yankee, to hit six homers in his first seven games of the season.
In the 2006 A.L. Division series, A-Rod showed why he is called "Mr. April." There is no doubt that A-Rod came up lame again in the post-season, hitting a robust .071, based on 1 for 14. In game #4, Torre even batted A-Rod 8th.
The Yankees have had Reggie Jackson, "Mr. October", Derek Jeter, "Mr. November, Dave Winfield, "Mr. May", and now they have "Mr. April", Alex Rodrigues.
