Alex Rodriguez’s exit and flawed idealism

Of all superstar retirements, Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez’s exit was one of the strangest and most understated; the career of the imperfect baseball icon came to an end in the middle of a mediocre New York Yankee season.

Behind The Bench: A September to remember for Marcus Stroman
