Alex Rodriguez is not a Camaro. He’s not even a sports car anymore. Maybe a Fiat? But the idea of buying a classic Camaro at a bottom-dollar price isn’t all that different from taking a chance on a future Hall of Fame infielder who has seen better days. Less than a week ago, while the New York Yankees were in the process of being swept out of the playoffs for the first time in 32 years, a report surfaced that the Marlins had discussions about a trade that would bring A-Rod to Miami. The most intriguing part of the rumor: The Yankees would pay almost all of the $114 million remaining on his contract. Trading for Rodriguez, paying him as little as a fourth of his contract each year, and waiting for him to return to MVP form again is fantasy talk. But if the price is right, it’s a gamble that might be worth considering, too.
The funny thing about this article is the guy who wrote it mentions that he watched the postseason. I guess how we interpret things is pretty significant because what I saw from A-Rod was this; a guy who not only couldn’t get a hit, he couldn’t put the ball in play if his life depended on it. Yeah the Yankees would eat all the contract, but when a really hot girl at the bar wants to take you home for sex that night there has to be more to the story.
