Alex Rodriguez Has a Better Shot Making the Hall of Fame as a Toledo Mudhen Then He Does as a New York Yankee

The immortal words of new Yankees owner Hank Steinbrenner and how true that statement turned out to be. Hank, part owner with his brother Hal Steinbrenner, made the comment “sarcastically” but the Detroit Tigers Triple-A affiliate wasted no time in taking advantage of it. On this day in 2007, a day after Alex Rodriguez opted out of his contract during Game 4 of the World Series, the Tigers minor league affiliate offered Alex a contract.

The deal was obviously a minor league deal that included incentives for hitting 75 home runs in 2008. The deal also included an incentive for leading the Tigers to ten consecutive International League titles. If only he had taken that contract, right? He’s back either way but it’s still fun to think of what could have been now that we’re in the offseason.
