The Yankees' Alex Rodriguez is currently in the final steps of rehabbing from hip surgery in order to return to the team. He's probably dying to get back to the MLB and do his best to help forget his miserable past months.
To recap some of the A-Rod sadness carnival: He was taken out of the lineup in the 2012 playoffs. He majorly screwed up his left hip. His name was tossed around in the batch of leaked Biogenesis documents. His own general manager told him to shut the fuck up. Throughout all of that, and much earlier than late 2012, Rodriguez has been generally reviled by even the most casual of sports fans.
