If Alex Rodriguez plays tonight in Cleveland, he will face righthander Jake Westbrook, the subject of numerous trade rumors (including the Yankees, where he pitched in 2000). He is 6-6 with a 4.74 earned run average. Wouldn't it be interesting if A-Rod hit his 600th off Westbrook and then became A-Rod's teammate by the trading deadline?
A-Rod has one home run in 24 at-bats against Westbrook. He is hitting 375 against the pitcher with one double and four runs batted in. A-Rod has a career batting average of .300 average against the Indians and has hit 29 homers.
