Alex Rodriguez mashed his 659th career home run Sunday, putting him one behind Willie Mays on the all-time dinger list. And though the home run helped the Yankees eke out a win, the team's front office may wish A-Rod kept the ball in the park.
That's because Rodriguez's contract includes a series of $6 million bonuses for various home run milestones, the first of which kicks in when Rodriguez ties Mays at 660.
The U. S. Supreme Court Monday took no action on whether to hear a lawsuit seeking to block a secret probe into Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign and its dealings with allied groups, leaving the decision for future days.
