Deadspin HOF Nominee: Alex Rodriguez

Well, we had to nominate one person whose very name makes you groan, and if we had picked Brett Favre, Drew would have never stopped stabbing me in the eye.

Nausea aside, it's difficult A-Rod hasn't earned the nomination.

Forget the steroids. He's breaking Simmons' heart by dating Penny Lane, turned Selena Roberts into Mike Nifong, deflowered a Spitzer madam, posed ridiculously and, in my favorite Roberts book excerpt, asked women at bars who they thought was hotter, him or Jeter?


And that's all just in 2009. Consider the whole body of work.

But is it it enough to get him in the Hall of Fame? Seventy five percent is the threshold for induction. Vote below: Polls will be open through the weekend.
