H-Rod making comeback with Pirates

Rodriguez also spawned a candy-bar craze in Canada. Fans would throw Oh Henry! bars on the field after his home runs.

Good ole Henry Rodriguez. Isn't he 40 now? Maybe Montreal should get him, he created more fan interest than Vlad Guerrero ever did. It's strange how nobody went to the games when they had one of the best hitters in baseball, but when they had H-Rod, they'd all head out to the stadium and throw chocolate bars on the field. It's amazing what having the same name as a type of candy will do for a player's popularity..........I guess Babe Ruth would be popular if he played in Montreal :-D

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I like H-rod and all and I hope he makes the team but only as a bench player. I'd hate to see him take the starting spot of a young guy like Tike Redman.
