Rodriguez is one year younger than former best buddy and former Yankee teammate Derek Jeter. Jeter played a significant amount in 2014, primarily at shortstop, and performed pretty well for a 40 year old player. Jeter had played only 17 games in 2013, so he was about as rusty as Rodriguez will be in 2015.

Maybe the VooDoo proponents are correct. Maybe they will fulfill their own prophecy ... by sticking needles into little A-Rod VooDoo dolls. Maybe Manfred, the A-Rod slayer, will be doing that too. Along with Yankee president Randy Levine. And the Steinbrenner Kids. Maybe.
