There Is Hope For Vilified, Overpaid Baseball Players Named Alex R.

Welcome back, Alex Rios. A-Rod, take heart!

Alex Rios had a historically bad year in 2011, chalking up a Wins Above Replacement rating of -1.7. Simply put, that means any old Triple-A outfielder would've helped the Chicago White Sox win 1.7 more games than the $12.5 million-earning Rios.

Last night, the old Alex Rios, the one that earned his $70 million contract once upon a time, was back, as he went 6-for-6 (and stole two bases!) in a nine-inning game.
