PRO: A multiple Major League record holder, A-Rod is perceived by many to be the best baseball player currently suiting up. He leads in home runs, runs scored, and RBIs. Many think he'll eventually beat the Barry Bonds all-time home-run record, no asterisks about it. (The Yankees have promised an additional $30 million if he does.)
CON: Despite his skill, his surly and scandal-prone personality has soured many viewers on watching him play. And what's this Canseco's been saying about A-rod using steroids?
