A-Rod Passes Great Lou Gehrig For All-Time Grand Slams!
A-Rod is a big fan of Gehrig, he really is, and when asked about Gehrig, he noted just that, saying: “I am a huge fan of Lou Gehrig, everything he’s done, even going back to his college days here in New York. He’s kind of like the gold standard for a Yankee. It’s a special moment and I’ll think about it someday.’’
“I’m not thinking home run there, that’s the last thing I’m thinking,’’ Rodriguez admitted. – nypost
A-Rod passed Yankees Great Lou Gehrig for all-time Grand Slams blasting the 24th of his career last night ensuring a clutch win over the San Francisco Giants 5-1 at Yankee Stadium in the BRONX! The BIG BLAST helped keep the Yankees (81-73) Playoff hopes alive with an outside chance of still making the final Wild-Card spot (3 games back)! Besides being a Yankees franchise record is a MLB all-time record! A-Rod is very lucky indeed to have even been able to step to the plate with a 211-game suspension looming for his prior HGH involvement with the Biogenesis clinic in Miami! A-Rod (654 HR’s) had been in a serious slump going 1-for-25 prior to the clutch at-bat, and still only needs six homeruns to tie the great Willie Mays (660 HR’s) on the all-time homerun list! The Willie Mays HR chase will have to wait till after the suspension with only eight games left in the regular season!
