A-Rod: Barry Bonds the greatest baseball player of all-time
Friday August 21st, 2015

In a Q&A with ESPN on Friday, Alex Rodriguez said Barry Bonds is the greatest baseball player of all-time.

Rodriguez's acknowledgment of Bonds comes just two days after the home run king called him “clutch” on Twitter for blasting a go-ahead grand slam Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins.

Rodriguez also revealed in the 13-question interview that he's a fan of the TV series House of Cards, and his favorite superhero is John McClane in Die Hard.

When asked which age he would go back to if he could, Rodriguez replied, “I never like to think about going back; I only look forward.”

The 40-year-old slugger also revealed the most unforgettable moments of his life in the interview.

“The births of my two daughters were the two greatest moments of my life,” Rodriguez said. “Professionally, jumping on top of Mariano Rivera on the mound for the 2009 championship.”

Rodriguez is batting .262 with 26 home runs and 68 RBIs for the first-place New York Yankees this season.
