ALEX RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

Yankees have reportedly considered cutting Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira

The possible rebuild of the New York Yankees could claim two very high profile victims. According to Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball, Yankees higher-ups have discussed potentially releasing first baseman Mark Teixeira and DH Alex Rodriguez. Teixeira is gone after the season anyway, with his contract set to expire. Rodriguez, though, is still signed through 2017 and owed $21...

Report: Yankees considering releasing Rodriguez, Teixeira

The make up of the New York Yankees might change in a big way if they decide to be sellers on the trade market. Players like Andrew Miller, Aroldis Chapman and Carlos Beltran could be moved. A few other high-profile players could also be released. “Some New York Yankees people have discussed whether, if they decide to sell, they might consider releasing great veterans Mark...

Alex Rodriguez has options if Yankees want to move on

The New York Yankees continue to be stuck in the middle. They’re 48-46, good enough to stay within five games of a wild card spot and six away from the division lead. But their roster is getting old, and for the most part is already well past its prime. Most believe it would be foolish […] The post Alex Rodriguez has options if Yankees want to move on appeared first on Todays Knuckleball.

For A-Rod and the Yankees, something has to give

When a superstar entering his prime years signs a long-term contract, there’s the unspoken understanding that the end won’t be pretty. Beyond the glamorous picture painted by gaudy numbers early in the contract is the acceptance that the final years will be filled with regret. We all knew this when Albert Pujols signed his $240 million deal through his age-41 season, when Prince...

Report: Alex Rodriguez won’t retire early or accept buyout

With the 40-year-old Alex Rodriguez scuttling mightily at the plate this season, the idea has been forwarded that perhaps he conceivably could decide to take an early retirement or perhaps even accept a buyout from the New York Yankees. Evidently, neither of those scenarios are ever going to happen, according to someone in A-Rod’s camp. FanRag Sports Network’s Jon Heyman writes...

This Might Be the End for Alex Rodriguez

Two opposing things can be true, I believe. Superstar players are probably the last to know when they’ve come to the end of the line. Declines can be so gradual they’re tough to detect if you’re just taking things day by day. If you listen to the players, they’ll insist they remain capable, even after they’re probably not. On the other side of the coin, no one loves to...

Ken Griffey Jr. once pranked A-Rod in disturbing fashion

By the time Alex Rodriguez reached the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners during the 1994 season, Ken Griffey Jr. already was an established superstar and one of the leaders of the team. This apparently granted Griffey the right to haze the then-18-year-old in spectacularly hilarious but also somewhat disturbing fashion. The hazing ritual, as regaled in a profile of Griffey...

Alex Rodriguez’s hamstring seems to be attached to his eyes

In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...
