Alex Rodriguez doesn’t understand why Yankees haven’t retired his No. 13: ‘It bothers me’

From 2004 through 2016, Alex Rodriguez was a cornerstone of the New York Yankees, earning multiple All-Star appearances and playing a big role in their 2009 World Series victory. 

His accomplishments with the team – 351 home runs, ranking sixth in franchise history – give him an argument to have his No. 13 retired among the illustrious group that sits in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium today. 

In fact, it rubs the three-time MVP the wrong way that his number hasn’t been retired by the team yet. 

Perhaps the same is happening for the Yankees, but Rodriguez certainly believes that his No. 13 should be next to those of Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio and his former teammate Derek Jeter among many others.
