The team just signed Ichiro to see if he can make them more money by chasing an individual achievement.
Did they write that into his contract? No.
Ichiro is a viable part of this team, not a hairy monster.
I like that direction.
Why should a player get paid with incentives, if he’s a player he’s already got a contract.
Isn’t that incentive enough?
They never boo Jeter.
Au contraire. They booed him repeatedly during that slump in 2004. He was also booed in a Red Sox game at the Stadium, July 4th I believe, 2008. Mo has also been booed. I was at all of these games. It was despicable.
Those were Red Sox fans.
Which makes it more likely that the best route to get A-Rod out of town, assuming they don’t want to look at him, is to get Selig to approve a trade that has them paying most of the contract, which he will. That’s why A-Rod needs to play this season, and play well.
they actuallly dont have to prove he took them, buying them or having them delivered is sufficient for a suspension.
idk how multiple uses from a single supplier counts in the cba but its hard to call usage over 4 seasons one offense. it’s clearly at least 4 instances of usage.
if he paid separately for each ‘dose’ as the records indicate, he violated the drug policy on each separate occasion.
Going to a Super Bowl gathering on Sunday, anyone has an opinion which team is going win?
Ravens are tough but can’t see them being able to contain Kaepernick. The guy is built like Superman; he can do just about everything and throws the ball as hard as Aroldis Chapman. Should be a close game but I’m picking the 49ers to win by three. Enjoy the chicken wings!
The possible ducking of A-Rod’s contract don’t mean squat to me. The discussion should center on Hal and the penny-pinching. There’s NO guarantee that even if the Yanks get outta A-Rod’s contract, that Hal is gonna loosen the purse strings. Hal should be trashed early and often, day-in-day out, in order to either get him to spend some of that profit $$$, or Sell.
