Over the past 3 seasons, the Yankees have paid Alex Rodriguez $91 million dollars in exchange for 34 Home-runs and 119 RBI’s. Curtis Granderson, hit 43 Home-runs (a Team best) and had 106 RBI’s (another Team best) in 2012 alone… at a salary of $10 million. Many people are calling for Curtis Granderson to be traded before the end of the 2013 season. Alex Rodriguez has yet to pick up a bat and swing it meaningfully this season.
*Hater’s side note – Granderson led the Yankees in strikeouts in 2012
**Reality side note: Home-run hitters generally strike out more than other hitters on their respective teams
