I can see a team like the Rays and the Marlins signing a guy like A-Rod just to sell tickets. Media can careless over there. Not saying it would actually happen but doubt A-Rod will be thought of as he would in NY. 




Think about Melky and Braun, then think about not only what they did but how they tried to cover it up.  They will both be forgiven and heroes again if they perform.  That would not be the case with the Yankees.  It would with the Mets though...




Lets look at it this way, if A-Rod can play at the major league level, right now I think that's a big question, if so, some team would take him and be glad to let the Yankees pay his salary.. Lets face it, that's just another way for some of these teams who dislike us to say, how do you like this Yankees ?? Still the question is A-Rod's body/talents up to major league standards ?? If so he'll be playing for the Yankees.. If not they will try to collect on some kind of insurance..




Completely agree, the Yankees owe A-Rod nothing but the contract they agreed to.  It is the team's responsiblity to do anything they can to win with the resources they have even if someone's nose gets bent out of shape.

   The Yankees owe A Rod the same thing he owes the Yankees...a genuine effort to make the best out of a very bad situation. A Rod has been guilty of a lot of very bad behavior...but he sure is not alone in that. Lots of bigs in the organization, include some guys I really liked, did very stupid things over the years. But the season starts over in April...When things are right everyone begins with the same record and the same goal. They should all focus on the season.
