SportsNation: A-Rod Returns to Texas

A-Rod is prepared for the boos.

This weekend, Alex Rodriguez will return to his former home of Arlington, Texas to play baseball. Only this time, the name on the stadium will be AmeriQuest Field instead of The Ballpark, he'll be kicking the dirt at third instead of short, and he'll be decked out in silver dollar gray and Darth Vader black.

After playing three seasons for the Rangers, at more than $20 million per season, Rodriguez was traded to the Yankees in exchange for Alfonso Soriano.

Which player would you rather have this season? Will Rodriguez ever get a ring? Can money buy happiness?

Cast your votes and see how your opinion stacks up to that of the rest of SportsNation.
