Alex Rodriguez became the 7th and youngest player in big league history to hit 600 home runs when he launched a two-run shot to center off Shawn Marcum in the first inning today. (Watch it while you can). Opinions vary on whether Alex and the latest generation of 600-hr club members deserve asterisks next to their records because of performance-enhancing drugs. MTD and I don't spend much time on steroid talk, and if backed into a corner, will actually blame the entire thing on Brady Anderson.
So Alex is on his way to 700, a mark I think he'll hit during the early part of the 2014 season, and the Offbase staff is on its way to the public library, Woodward and Bernstein-style, to start digging up dirt on Anderson. We'll go ahead and reveal our source on the inside: it's this guy.
