On February 15, 2004, the Rangers traded Rodriguez to the New York Yankees for second baseman Alfonso Soriano and a player to be named later ( Joaquín Árias was sent to the Rangers on March 24). The Rangers also agreed to pay $67 million of the $179 million left on Rodriguez's contract. Rodriguez agreed to switch positions from shortstop to third base, paving the way for the trade, because the popular Derek Jeter was already entrenched at shortstop. Rodriguez also had to switch uniform numbers, from 3 to 13; he had worn 3 his entire career, but that number is retired by the Yankees in honor of Babe Ruth .
While Square Enix has a number of B-tier series, few have had such a tumultuous fall from grace than Front Mission . In many ways, Front Mission 5 succeeded as more than the just the sum of its failures, and brought the games’ many interconnected and overlapping storylines to a satisfactory conclusion. Not content to ocalize the PS2 game and bring it overseas though, Square instead commissioned the makers of Silent Hill: Homecoming , Double Helix, to create Front Mission: Homecoming , one of the saddest fait accomplis the company’s fans have ever had to endure.
