    A-Rod to opt out of contract

    SI.com - MLB - Jon Heyman: A-Rod to opt out of contract - Sunday October 28, 2007 10:41PM

    Devastating to the Yankees. They could be a last place team next year.

    Let's not overreact. The Yanks will do just fine without him.

    They will just replace him like they always do.

    What scares me more is the change of hand with upper management and Torre leaving.

    you're not worried, min0?

    with torre gone, you truly have to wonder what is going through the minds of posada, rivera, and pettite.

    a lot of holes to fill, is spending too much money on players just to "fill the void" the right thing to do? in my mind it isn't.

    Nope, we won without him.
    We won the WS with Scott Brosus at third and he's not a hall of famer.

    I am sick of his constant media whoring, if he wants to stay than great but if he wants to leave well then stop using the Yankees as a bargaining table.

    Yep, with Torre leaving the others may leave also.
    A lot of free agents were eager to play for him.

    He wants a lof of money and I don't think the Yankees are willing to pay him what he wants.

    Most people think the Yankees are paying his whole salary but they really aren't, Bills Hicks is still paying the majority of that contract.....what an idiot.

    When A-Rod and his avenging agent were seeking to sign up with the Mets he wanted some crazy demands..

    24 plus 1 player......$250 mil for 12 years...





    playRodrigez's demands: A greater billboard presence in New York than Jeter; a tent at the Mets' spring-training site that would sell Rodriguez merchandise (and Rodriguez merchandise only); a store inside Shea Stadium that would sell Rodriguez merchandise (and Rodriguez merchandise only); a marketing team supplied by the Mets to work for Rodriguez (and Rodriguez only); a luxury box at Shea Stadium and other places where the Mets play; charter jet service for Rodriguez's family and friends; an escape clause after three and seven years; and a guarantee he'll remain the highest-paid player in the game....

    .
    if there is anything we should know about the yankees is it's just buisness. the way they move players around. its not personal, its just buisness. so if a player turns the tables on the yankees and uses them ans a bargaining chip, more power to 'em. we are not talking about loyalty here. it's just buisness. does anyone think that they would hold on to the beloved golden child jeter if his stats fell? that they will let him finish out his career a yankee when he gets older his stats fall, he losses some range and he is just a season or two from some record? jeter will be shipped out just like everyone else.

    hell if a classy organization like st louis would push out the wizard of ozz, jeter should already be looking over his shoulder

    That is all true, this goes back to The Babe, Stengel Gehrig and Jackson.

    This is not about the Yankees, it's more about baseball.\
    His demands are outrageous, there was word he was interested in part ownership with the Cubs if he would have signed.

    If he wants to be a Yankee like he claimed then sign the generous amount the Yankees gave him, the Yankees have stated they don't want to be used as a bargaining tool to get a better deal elsewhere.

    I would think that winning would be the whole thing but he's more about money and stats.

    Couldn't A-Rod at least tell his agent to wait till after the Sox win it to come out this?

    No class at all.

    A-rod was a nobody really till he came to New York. Yes he was a great player.

    For him to be demanding things, is just stupid by both his Agent and himself. Look at the long term prostects of being big in the biggest market in Baseball. Shit if they ended up winning the World Series, he would reap so much business from other avenues, nothing could compensate incomparison to his silly demands.
