Will Yankees retire Alex Rodriguez’s number? Mike Francesa weighs in

Alex Rodriguez had a remarkable, albeit controversial, career for the Yankees.

Rodriguez is among the top-10 in franchise history in many offensive categories. He was a seven-time All-Star in pinstripes, winning three Silver Slugger and two MVP awards and a World Series. And then there are the steroids, the opt-out, the suspension, the feuds and the rest of the nonsense.

The Yankees have assigned his No. 13 since his playing days ended, most recently to the now-departed Joey Gallo. But it is now on the shelf again. And given Rodriguez has pulled off an impressive reputation rebuild since he retired, is it possible the Yankees could go as far as to eventually retire his number or give him a plaque in Monument Park?
