A-Rod or Haynesworth: Who's gonna win?

Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees can't get past his 599th home run. Albert Haynesworth, as has been equally well-documented, can't get past Mike Shanahan's conditioning test. Something has to give. We think.

A-Rod is cold as of the current moment. Whenever I watch him play he appears to be straining to get 600. Big Al might just have a freak occurrence an actually pass the test. I know crazy idea, but it might just happen.

It's interesting seeing the video of Haynesworth talking about the training he received in Atlanta a year ago and yet still couldn't pass the fitness test. Weird, huh?

What I don't understand is last year he (was 30 pounds heavier) and he passed the test!!! He's lighter now and can't do it? If you paid me a 21 million bonus I'd crawl through glass and pass this test.. Way to go Fat Albert..

A-Rod is in better shape (thanks to steroids), has more opportunities, and will eventually face a less than stellar pitcher or another pitcher will make a mistake.

Not a fair contest! Albert has a better chance of getting a PhD in nuclear physics than passing that fitness test.
