ESPN isn’t waiting for the end of the season to start the A-Rod speculation. They’re looking all of his possibilities starting with New York.
SportsCenter asked me to come on and talk about it tonight. I said I thought the Yankees had too much at stake with a new stadium and YES to let him go.
Meanwhile, Brian Cashman said again today that if Alex opts out of his deal, the Yankees wold not pursue him. He was adamant about that. The only way Alex stays is to play under his current deal or accept an extension.
Cashman said the Yankees would consider it a deal-breaker if A-Rod forces them to forfeit the money they would get from Texas. “That would not be prudent of him,” Cashman said.
