I only started thinking about his milestone the other day. There have been too many other Yankees-related things on my mind, and I don’t keep track of players’ stats anyway. But here we are, only two dingers shy of 600. With many of our Friends of the Blog attending the games in the Bronx over the course of this home stand, I thought I’d take a look at A-Rod’s horoscope for the rest of the month and see what it has in store.
Yes, he’s a Leo, born on July 27th, so the entire month of July is lucky for him, according to Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone. But in particular:
* July 21 – “You will feel a great weight lifted off your chest.” Is this the day he’ll hit the big one? Against the Angels? From his recent interview, it doesn’t sound as if he’s felt a great weight about the home run so I wouldn’t bet on it happening on this date.
* July 25 – “The full moon will mean solidifying a very successful, profitable business alliance.” Interesting. If he hits the home run, that’ll mean he gets a bonus, as per his contract.
* July 26 – “The best day of the month for you. You will get a double dip of luck.” Very promising but do we really want A-Rod to be celebrating in Cleveland?
There’s one more tidbit from his forecast for this month: “You appear to be spending more time with medical personnel than usual.” Uh-oh. Please no.
