A-Rod simply has a flare for the dramatic.
After the plunk seen around the world on Sunday’s Yankees vs Red Sox game A-rod was left with the last laugh as he hit a booming home run off Ryan Dempster in the 6th inning.
The solo blast helped pick the Yankees up from a 6-3 deficit and got the ball rolling for what would be a 9-6 Yankees victory.
The Dempster pitch inside followed by the plunk seemed to have turned even the most staunch of A-rod haters on his side if only for a moment.
Did the move backfire in the long run?
