He will most likely break the homerun record. He is a RBI machine. And he is guarenteed more postseason opportunities in years to come by signing with the Yanks. He will be remembered as the greatest by the time he retires.

Good argument man. Don't even kid about that. AROD is a GOD and HE WILL SMOTE YOU FOR THAT BLASPHEMY

lol, well it could happen anyway, with all the great hitters of the past i dont think he's better than lets say hank aaron. Baseball is not all about numbers but its about image to and i dont think arod will go down as the best hitter of all time because his image isnt that of other greats

Yeah i agree, it would be quite unfair to say the best hitter of all time is a God more powerful and all knowing then Zeus, Thor and Ra combined. That I agree on with you
