A-Rod's hip is better than his memory

Oh well, it sounded good.

Alex Rodriguez returned from hip surgery and hit the first pitch he saw for a home run, turning on a 97 mph fastball from Baltimore's Jeremy Guthrie Friday night at Camden Yards. It was a great story, all by itself.

But, of course, Rodriguez had to add to it.

"It's something I couldn't do last year, the last two months," he said. "The last two months, I was helpless on that pitch. Anything above 92, I felt like I didn't have a prayer."

Except, apparently, when he did.

According to Gameday on MLB.com, two of Rodriguez's last three home runs in 2008 came on 96 mph fastballs from Ervin Santana and Edwin Jackson. He homered off Santana on Sept. 9, and off Jackson on Sept. 14.

He homered 12 times in the final two months, and according to Gameday, eight of the 12 were on fastballs -- although none of the other fastballs were clocked above 93 mph.

A-Rod, if healthy enough will break Bonds single season HR record next year... Yankees cracker jack box, and a healthy beast named A-Rod = 80 ding dongs!

Maybe he can't remember every homerun he hit's.  The first is the most special and 500 ranks up there with greats of the game.  But are you telling me that you could remember all the other 552 homers he has hit and how fast the pitch was and who was pitching.  I think he deserves a little respect.  I mean if he was god enough to play in the show then he atleast has earned some respect wether you hate him or love him.
