The Yankees season has become partly a redemption story because of Alex Rodriguez. It helps that he hasn't sucked in his comeback either. He's so far batted five home runs, including a tie breaker that gave the Yankees the 3-2 win over the Red Sox on Friday.
Of course, there's more to it than win No. 14. That home run is Rodriguez's 660th, which ties him with Willie Mays for fourth all time. Third place happens to belong to another Yankee great—Babe Ruth has 54 more home runs.
It was an emotional moment for A-Rod. He said Mays was one of his heroes. Plus, Fenway Park was where he played his first game of MLB baseball in 1994.
"It was very emotional for me," he said to the MLB Network. "The last few years have been rough. To see [his teammates] reaction...it was pretty emotional."
Many on baseball twitter were unsympathetic, however. This was a moment to fire more shots at Rodriguez.
Fans could take solace in how the Yankees are deciding not to give Rodriguez the $6 million marketing bonus originally promised on his 660th home run. The Yankees acknowledged it on Twitter, but claimed that Rodriguez's steroids-related suspension made him unmarketable.

So there might be a fight ahead, but for now, Rodriguez is No. 4 all-time. Accept it.
