    the Yankees announced Thursday that Rodriguez will join the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Friday to play in a rehabilitation assignment game. If he is not suspended and prevented from playing pending an appeal, A-Rod could rejoin the Yankees as early as Sunday in San Diego or in Chicago on Monday.

    Just a hunch, but ARod suspension negotiations shall drag out, and he'll end up doing something around 100-150 games. Pathetic.




    Seems to me the longer it goes on the more likely it is that they will settle.

    I'm thinking MLB has drawn a line in the sand at 200 games, the remainder of this season and all of next and why team Arod has not agreed to a deal.

      Commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to levy a lifetime suspension on New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, while suspending about eight others before the weekend, two people with knowledge of the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports.

    The people were unauthorized to speak publicly because no announcement is expected until Thursday or Friday.




    Considering how long ARod supposedly took PED'S and all the evidence against him he has been quite fortunate compaired to others.  He should just bite the bullet and take whatever deal he can if he ever wants to play again.  ARod will end up a decent DH at some point but I don't think most Yankee fans care where.

    His entire contract was a fiasco, especially the "out clause" which basically just made him richer in the same uniform.

    This has become a calculated game of chicken; only ARod, 'cause he's special. MLB should tweak the settlement offer a little, and tell the ARod team they have 24 hrs to accept it or they'll invoke the (perhaps modified) nuclear option; if they take them to court, fine. His legal team shall probably request a legal stay regardless of the appeals process options, such as the 'integrity of the game' path.

    It wouldn't surprise me if one day ARod sues the HOF to induct him, citing slander.

    I don't beleieve it; these journalists should just shut up and wait for the dust to settle; nobody should hold their breath. From the sublime to the ridiculous, if it goes on long enough, he might actually get to play some; likely much to the  behest of the FO, teammates, & fans, pro & con.

    If Alex Rodriguez is seriously waffling on cutting a deal with Major League Baseball, as he is said to be doing, the Feds may have just given him a reason to reconsider.

    Federal prosecutors have renewed their interest in Anthony Bosch and his Biogenesis anti-aging clinic, raising the specter of criminal drug distribution charges; if they subpoena Rodriguez as a witness in the case, any sworn statements he might make in arbitration while challenging his pending suspension could put him in legal jeopardy.

    “I think it’s devastating for Alex,” a source familiar with MLB’s investigation into Rodriguez and other ballplayers who are believed to have violated baseball’s collectively bargained drug program told the Daily News. “He would be under oath in an arbitration, and all the evidence baseball has on him would be available to prosecutors.”

    RELATED: EIGHT DOWN, ONE TO GO: A-ROD ONLY ONE NOT OFFERED 50-GAME BAN BY MLB

    MLB investigators have hundreds of emails, text messages and phone records linking Rodriguez to Bosch, sources have told The News, as well as documents and notes indicating transactions, dates and drug purchases. They may also have other evidence reflecting stronger financial ties between Rodriguez and Bosch.

    If the choice is between sitting out this year and next, or a life-time ban, why are there reports that Rodriguez is trying to keep some of his contract money?  Why would it be in jeopardy - he could take the suspension and play out 2015 - 2017 for the rest of his money.  Is there some sort of games played clause in the contract?

    who's "they"?  i believe only 1 poster said it.

    blame your boy Mo for arod being a yankee:

    Teammate Mariano Rivera convinced Rodriguez to contact the New York Yankees ownership.[44] He contacted them directly, bypassing Boras (Boras also apologized for the timing of the announcement). Subsequently, Rodriguez issued a statement on his website, saying that he wished to stay with the Yankees.[45] On November 15, 2007, the New York Yankees and Rodriguez agreed on the "basic framework" of a 10-year, $275 million contract that would have him playing until he is 42


    contrary to false information posted on this thread...Texas does not owe arod $40MM of the contract.  not even close.  as of 2010 it was $24MM so i would imagine a few more MM$ have been shaved off it.

    You're right it isn't 40m but more:

     

    If Major League Baseball were to ban Alex Rodriguez for life because of performance-enhancing drugs, the New York Yankees would get off the hook for nearly $100 million in future salary.

    The Rangers would not be so lucky.

    The Rangers still owe Rodriguez approximately $40 million (which will grow to nearly $50 million by the time it is paid) in deferred money from his original contract. That money was later deferred even further to accommodate his trade to New York. It is to be paid from 2016-2025.
