ALEX RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

Yankees are fully committed to Alex Rodriguez disaster

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Their DNA hasn’t changed even if the talent level over the years isn’t what it used to be when future Hall of Famers dotted the roster and trumped mere All-Stars. The Yankees, 6 ½ games off the pace in a crowded AL East field, still harbor belief they are a winning...

Joe Girardi says we’ll ‘probably’ see Alex Rodriguez again soon

HOUSTON — Alex Rodriguez didn’t start Monday night against Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel, so he isn’t a lock to be in the lineup Saturday or Sunday when the Rays start lefties Drew Smyly and Blake Snell at Tropicana Field. However, manager Joe Girardi hinted Wednesday he likely will dust off the designated hitter, who turned...

A-Rod: Ortiz deserves Fenway statue, street named after him

Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Johnny Pesky, Bobby Doerr and Dom DiMaggio all have been immortalized with statues outside Fenway Park — fitting recognition for five Boston Red Sox legends. Alex Rodriguez believes David Ortiz should receive the same honor after his storied major league career concludes this fall. “No one else can speak for that team like he can,” Rodriguez...

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...

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...

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...
