Yes is a Yankee, so he warrants neither my thought nor attention.

A friend told me the other day that she had read that A-ROD stated that 2014 is his last season. I wonder if he's doing that to avoid spending millions of dollars fighting MLB over his alleged drug use. Or maybe he realizes that his body is no longer 20 years old and that he will have to quit any way.
Any thoughts?!

Last I heard from the 'talking sports heads', A-Rod is going to go down in flames. According to them, he's too arrogant to know it. emoticon

That would just mean that Mr Angelos would have to pony up wouldn't it? Is Weiters worth the kind of money his FA would command? I say yes. Pay him.

Does not want to see A-Rod suspended. Not for one game.

Right now he costs the Yankees oodles, and will for years to come. He's also washed up. My heart sings with joy over the thought of New York wasting all that money.

A suspension would void his contract for the suspended period. The Yankees would have the money to sign free agents again. Such as, oh i don't know, Wieters in a couple of years.

I hear the talking heads on ESPN say that MLB has become very serious about stamping out drug/hormone therapy use by the players. They also say that if Bud Selig goes after EVERYONE who's using, there won't be any players left. So, perhaps MLB won't do the job thoroughly. Who knows?

However, going after A-ROD makes my heart sing. I once read an article ( I think A-Rod was still in his teens) in which he said he wanted to be just like Cal Ripken, Jr. The article included a picture of the two of them standing together. At the time that I read the article, A-Rod was already a major player for the Yankees. I thought to myself, "You'll never be another Cal Ripken Jr.". Then came the 2004 AL East playoffs when he tried to slap the ball out of the 1st baseman's hand so that he wouldn't be out. My dislike for his arrogance just grew from that point on.

So, to me, he's just getting what he has earned throughout the years. I hope he never plays baseball again. But that's just me! emoticon
