Major League Baseball's Winter Meetings got off to a rough start for the Yankees, as sources confirmed to ESPN that Alex Rodriguez is expected to have hip surgery, costing him the first half of the 2013 season. A-Rod struggled in the 2012 postseason, going just 3-of-25 with 12 strikeouts, and hasn't been an MVP caliber player for a few seasons now. Is this the beginning of the end for the player once seen as a near-lock to break the all-time home run record? Cast your votes!

A-Rod was the youngest player to hit 600 HR, but he's hit just 34 over the last two seasons.
