Whether you think he should go away forever or the constant talk about him should, everybody has an opinion on Alex Rodriguez right now. One day after he was handed a 211-game suspension from Major League Baseball, then went out and played his first game of the season anyway (he can play until his appeal his heard), A-Rod is seemingly all the baseball world can talk about.
This, of course, is nothing new for the highest-paid player in the game, who has been a subject of controversy and tabloid fodder for years. On this day though, the @YahooSports Twitter account posed a simple challenge that proved both fun and insightful.
