in Monday night’s 5-2 New York Yankees loss to the

Toronto Blue Jays. His home run tied the game at the time —

oh, and it was also No. 650 in his career.

That puts him 10 homers behind Willie Mays for fourth on the

all-time home run list. And if you’re already steaming just

PED suspension, then you might just boil over if you didn’t

know this: Rodriguez’s ridiculous contract includes a $6

million bonus when he ties Mays.
