While grocery shopping with Lili, I saw a magazine that featured Alex Rodriguez on the cover. So I picked up the magazine and started flipping through its pages as I like to do at the grocery store, especially if my wife isn't with me. A brief look at the A-Rod article reminded me of his $275 million contract which made me wonder if A-Rod, and other extremely overpaid players like him, think they are worth the money they get paid.
Because if I were in George Steinbrenner's shoes I would expect A-Rod to hit home runs all the time. I would expect home runs regardless of pitch or pitcher, weather conditions or time of day, batting order or ball park. Heck, I'd expect A-Rod to hit a home run blindfolded on a moonless night. Otherwise you're not really getting your money's worth.
