A-Rod Finally Leads Rangers To World Series

A-Rod Finally Leads Rangers To World

ARLINGTON, TXTen years after signing a record $252 million contract
to play baseball in Texas, third baseman Alex Rodriguez finally
delivered for the Rangers by leading the franchise to its first-ever
World Series. “A-Rod came up big for us this entire series, all the
way up until the last out,” Rangers manager Ron Washington told
reporters during a postgame press conference, saying that the Rangers
would have had no chance of beating the New York Yankees without
Rodriguez’s remarkable performance at the plate. “It was a long time
coming, but you have to give the guy credit. He was the Rangers’ MVP,
no question.” Washington added that seeing Rodriguez take Texas to the
World Series was one thing, but A-Rod almost single-handedly beating
the Yankees was “extra sweet.”
