I'm not a Yankee fan or A-Rod fan (see the avatar) but I am a baseball fan. I appreciate it's history and I really truly hope he breaks the all time home run record. The steroid scandal was a black eye and dark time for baseball....having him break the record would go far in helping us forget about it.
Jose Canseco has something to say about A-Rod being clean...he's been right so far, so I don't really know what to think. But until proven otherwise, A-Rod and Pujols are the top two clean HR guys.
And as for him getting injured, generally I differentiate my teams enough so that if any player goes down, it can hurt me. But, alas, I didn't have any first picks this year, so its 'meh' for me. (if Wright went down, who I have in 3/4 leagues, I would be concerned).
