Is A-Rod’s #600 A Big Deal?

I was watching SportsCenter while I was working out this morning and they asked if Alex Rodriguez hitting career home run #600 was a big deal. I think the the answer is simple…of course it is. I was surprised to see that more than a third of the voters thought it was a “small deal.” There shouldn’t even be an argument.

Only seven players in Major League Baseball history have reached the 600 home run plateau. Keep in mind the first big league game was played on May 4, 1871. That’s only seven players in 139 years. Not to mention, A-Rod is the youngest player to reach the milestone (he’s just 35-years-old). All he needs is 33 homers a year for the next five seasons and he’ll beat Barry Bonds’ record of 762. That’s totally feasible. Rodriguez has hit more than 35 or more home runs in 13 of his 14 full big league seasons (he’s played parts of 17 years in the majors). That’s why this is a big deal.

It’s a whole different story if SportsCenter would have asked how much people care about Alex Rodriguez hitting #600. Last February, A-Rod admitted to using steroids from 2001-2003 with the Texas Rangers. He hit 52, 57, and 47 home runs over those three seasons. Who knows how many he would have jacked if he wasn’t cheating? Probably a lot less than that. It’s VERY likely that Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs longer than that, but he didn’t come all the way clean. No doubt about it…his numbers are tainted.

The fact that A-Rod’s an admitted steroid user makes #600 an even bigger deal than if he wasn’t. It’s sparked plenty of conversations on the internet, television, and radio. It has everyone talking. My mom even asked me what I thought about the situation. When that happens, I know an event is more than a sports story.

I hate that steroids have ruined baseball. I hate that every record or milestone is going to be questioned from here on out. I can cry about it all I want, but it’s better to just deal with it. All I can do now is sit back and enjoy the show.

What do you think about Alex Rodriguez hitting #600? I would love to hear from you on Twitter @lewissports or you can email me at tim@timlewissports.com. You can also simply leave a comment below.
