Alex Rodriguez joined Mike Francesa at Yankee Stadium on Friday and discussed how he felt before and after hitting his 600th home run.

A-Rod also talked about milestones and the Yankees Red Sox series.

A-Rod became the youngest member of the 600-home run club on Wednesday, at 35 years, joining an exclusive but expanding group that includes Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), Babe Ruth (714), Willie Mays (660), Ken Griffey Jr. (630) and Sammy Sosa (609). The next youngest was Ruth at 36 years, 196 days, in 1931, though he did it in 183 fewer games.

Among active players, Jim Thome (577) is second, followed by Manny Ramirez (554), Chipper Jones (435), Vladimir Guerrero (428), Jason Giambi (412) and Andruw Jones (403). Only Albert Pujols, with 393 at a relatively young 30, is likely to have a chance to reach 700 along with Rodriguez.

    Loser-Rod took how many at-bats to go from 599 to 600? bet he misses his steroids.
