Yeah, the Yankees won't get anyone of value back, that I promise. It'll be a total salary dump situation if ARod is somehow moved.

THey will have to eat at least 75% of that salary.

Edit to pat myself on the back. Do the Yankees have the stones to pay off A-Rod and dump him

I don't want Heath Bell...maybe they'll send Ozzie Guillen over and he can be our traveling bat boy?

Pretty sure stanton would set the HR record by the all-star break if he played in yankee stadium.

I'd keep him in NY and on the bench. Obtain a quality 3rd baseman in the offseason. Send him(ARoid) down to AAA frequently. Pinch hit him until his bat comes around. If it doesn't and it looks like you have a shot at the post season, trade him to Houston and make him totally miserable.

Rumor has it for Heath Bell. I cannot see that happening.

I heard they are gonna give Arod to Miami. In exchange, Ozzie Guillen has to wear duct tape over his mouth, until the end of his contract.

its amazing how quickly Arod turned into Alfonso Soriano. But seriously why didnt anyone take a flyer on Soriano this year. Dude can still hit, and Cubs paying probably 95% if you give them any kind of arm.

Actually the Cubs and Giants had a deal in place, But Soriano used his no trade clause to reject it, so the Cubs decided to wait until the offseason

And Fidel Castro is coming to the Yankees in a 3-way deal. Just rumor though.

Honestly, I'd be happy to have A-Rod in Atlanta for $6-8M a year.
