Well, it seems that Alex Rodriguez is on the verge of signing a 10-year, $300 million contract with the Yankees. He will be charged $26.1 million for the fees the Yankees payed to Texas, but it will still be the greatest salary in sports history.

Anyone else think his agent overplayed a perfect hand, screwing up a potential $350 million contract? And is A-Rod doing it to save face for his recent reputation hits, or is he all about the bucks?

Let's talk about this situation; I had really hoped he was going to leave the Yankees. And it's not just because I'm a Red Sox fan.

Go Sox!

And honestly, A-Rod's just a douche anyways. As a Seattlite and Mariner fan, it killed me when I left. I still haven't forgoten it!

My mind is going. I can feel it.
I thought Hank Steinbrenner said the Yankees weren't going to deal with Rodriguez if he opted out? Oh well. I don't mind. If they're paying him $300 million, they won't be able to afford to revamp their pitching staff, which sorely needs it.

And then my Red Sox can own the division again. Mwhahaha!
Can't stop the signal.
I was hoping that he leaved. I'm neutral about the Yankees, but I was under the impression they were starting fresh. And A-rod hasn't done anything ddurring his 10 years at 250M$
and i thought they were going to have a big changing year, new manager, no more a-rod, better pitching...younger players...but i guess not.

I don't really care. Im not sure I wanted the Angels to get him in the first place, and maybe now they'll be more inclined to make a run at Miguel Cabrera. Also, A-Rod sucks in October, so I'm not worried about him in the playoffs.
a-rod will break the career home run record in 7 years, the yankees will pay anything for that.
