Rodriguez’s teammates are long past the fatigue factor with his controversies.
Asked if he wanted Rodriguez back in 2015, Teixeira added: "If Alex is out there hitting home runs and driving in runs, who wouldn't want him back?"
Added Yankees right-hander David Phelps: "The one thing I know about Alex is our team is better when he's in the lineup. We're definitely going to miss him."
Rodriguez tried casting himself as the victim of a witch hunt, tried to depict Bosch a criminal in his own right...
No owner would risk Selig’s wrath by signing the most hated man in the game’s modern history. Selig used his own scorched-earth policy to finish off Rodriguez, making it clear what happens to his enemies.
The thing that annoys me most about all this ######## is that the Yankees get to weasel out of a terrible contract that they never should have offered.
There’s no way he’ll ever play for the Yankees again. The team’s hierarchy would just as soon buy out the remainder of Rodriguez’s contract than allow him back in the clubhouse.
Thanks for the laugh.
Well, they still owe him $61 mil even with the 2014 reprieve.
Laugh all you want. A-Rod's teammates sure looked supportive when Dempster threw at him last year. I just happen to think that the idea of Rodriguez being universally reviled among his peers is more than a little bit overblown.

Unfortunately, every now and then a witch hunt catches an actual witch.
What if he bought tickets to every game (home and away) and made a big deal about cheering on the team?
Jeter on A-Rod:
Will he be at Spring Training - “I have no idea,” Jeter said Friday after working out at the Yankees’ minor league complex. “You’d have to ask him.”
Should he be at Spring Training? “I’m not an adviser, man,” Jeter said. “I don’t know, really, enough about it to even comment on it. I don’t know the rules, the regulations.”
Yankee captain opened up ever so slightly on the 162-game ban slapped on A-Rod by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, saying he was “saddened by the whole thing,” and calling it “kind of messy.”
“Other than that, it is what it is,”
Now there's a strong endorsement, if I ever heard one.
Jeter is about the least controversial person ever. He studied at the feet of Crash Davis when it comes to quotes. Jeter has never, ever, ever in his entire life, ever said one thing interesting publicly, he's just too scared of tarnishing his image.

Doesn't cost anything for the Yankees to take a look at A-Rod in 2015, they aren't loaded with 3B options, and it costs $61M to make A-Rod go away. The folks saying he'll never play again for the Yankees are voicing their own wishes.
Last year the Yankee third baseman hit seven HRs and drove in 45 RBIs.
I'd rather take a look at Jeter's quotes, all of your tired, regurgitated 'neutral' meme aside.
Selig will be retired. The Yankees will not swallow $61 million just for PR purposes, and even if they did, and no one signs A-Rod, you're basically handing the union a slam-dunk collusion ruling with triple damages.
You see a great moral crisis here?
No owner would risk Selig’s wrath by signing the most hated man in the game’s modern history.
Either the "most hated" keeps changing according to whim or maybe it's just that Klapisch is a complete idiot.
Belle leads to Bonds. Bonds leads to hate. Hate leads to A-Rod. You can lead A-Rod to water but you can't make him drink.
Why do we keep leaving Chris Truby out of the narrative?
