Should the Yankees remove A-Rod’s # 13 instead of giving it to Joey Gallo?

Should the Yankees remove A Rods 13 instead of giving

The New York Yankees were one of the big winners of the MLB trade deadline by perhaps acquiring what they needed in their lineup: Left-handed bats. With this, they acquired the sluggers Anthony Rizzo from the Chicago Cubs and Joey Gallo from the Texas RangersThe latter being one of the most popular targets to reinforce the Bronx Bombers, being a powerful bat.

To Joey Gallo, management gave the number 13, which no one had worn in Yankees flannel since Alex Rodríguez retired from baseball in 2016, which opened a debate among some sectors of the Bronx fans about whether he should whether or not said number was used, with Michael Gwizdala of the Bronx Pinstripes portal, arguing about whether the number 13 should be withdrawn or not by the organization.

Directly related to A-Rod, there is a case to be made on both sides of the argument about whether or not to withdraw his number. He was a World Series champion, won two MVP’s, 7 All-Star Game nominations and three silver bats with the Yankees. However, there is also the suspension for banned substances in 2014 and all its extra sports scandals.

Does A-Rod deserve the Yankees retiring his number?

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
