Alex Rodriguez turned his back on the Yankees and opted out of his contract.

Meanwhile, the next manager of the team appears to be Joe Girardi.


Spoke to some people who were in Denver for Game 4 last night. The Red Sox fans at Coors Field gathered behind the dugout to celebrate the victory and at one point started chanting, “Don’t Sign A-Rod!”

Given their cozy relationship with Scott Boras, anything is possible. There are people who believe Boras made a side deal with Boston before having J.D. Drew opt out of his contract with the Dodgers last season.

We know only this: Rodriguez will go where the money is best. He obviously doesn’t care what people think about him. His legacy will always be more about his contract than championships.

Hopefully he ends up in the American League, if only to hear what 55,000 people in the Bronx booing as loudly as they can sounds like.
