On February 16, 2004, 11 years ago the Rangers traded Chump-Rod Rodriguez to the Yankees for Alfonso Soriano and Joaquin Arias.
In 2004 Slime-Rod was 28 and the defending AL MVP (simply tainted.)Choke-Rod been with the Yankees ever since, hitting .291 with 309 homers 1,293 games while winning two more MVP awards and one World Series title.
One would expect Yankees fans to adore this guy. It has been simply the opposite.
