People still thank Alex Rodriguez for winning the 2009 World Series

Per an old video of Vanity Fair, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez revealed people do not call them by their real names. They prefer to call them by their short names, such as Jlo and A-Rod. However, in A-Rod’s case, people call him by different names in Boston and New York.

The New York Yankees legend said, “If I am in Boston, it’s not that. If I am in New York, it is like A-Rod (shouting) thanks for 2009.”

With 30 home runs from the plate, A-Rod had a fantastic season from the plate. It was his first and only World Series title. That World Series victory remains the last title for the American League giants.

Despite all these facts, there is another reason why the Boston Red Sox fans do not like Alex Rodriguez. Per NJ.com, A-Rod was about to sign for the Red Sox in the 2004 season. But because of some paperwork, the MLB Players Association did not approve the deal. And that is where the New York Yankees came into the scene and signed him on a long-term contract.
