Arod, Albert Pujols or Miguel Cabrera might help bring some legitimacy back into the home run leaderboard down the road.
Now, I believe A-Rod is the best player in baseball, but I had to laugh when I heard the new nickname that's making the rounds about him lately.
Seems a few of his old teammates are privately calling him The Cooler. Its a reference to the way teams Alex has left, like Seattle and Texas, have immediately played better baseball without him. I truly believe both situations were coincidental, but its still a funny handle.
