Given his need for attention and the narrative friends say he’s already scripted – disgraced PED-user rises from the ashes to win over the fans – news of A-Rod’s homecoming isn’t entirely unexpected.
What’s more surprising, though, is ownership’s willingness to let Rodriguez walk through the open door.
The whole notion of buying out the remainder of A-Rod’s contract seems dead for now. One major league official familiar with the Yankees’ thinking said, “Unless [the Steinbrenner family] offers A-Rod 100 cents on the dollar, why would he walk away?”
Unfortunately for A-fraud, the Yankees seem to have at least possibly found a better third basemen.
He was old for AA and AAA over the past three years and his overall performance there was mediocre. What are the odds he is playing at his true ability level, or close to it, rather than simply having the best seven weeks of his life?
"It would be best for all concerned for the Yankees to get rid of him any way they can."
What are you suggesting, CS?
do people REALLY think that hank steinbrenner is gonna hand arod 60 mill to not show up?
Seriously, Hal is Michael and Hank is Fredo, and that has been evidently clear for years (well, since the Arod decision, actually) ...
so Hank broke Hal's heart?
There is no value left folks. He is old and brittle and can't play without drugs. Trying to milk some value from the carcass would be futile. If he can somehow convince some other team to let him play, perhaps he can work out a deal with the Yankees for his release. Otherwise the Yankees would be wise to admit their mistake and pay him off.

Given ARod 2015 and beyond is more likely to be "Dude, where's my car?" than he is to be "Hangover" much less "The Big Leboswki" ...

If I were the Yankees, I'd consider just releasing him. I know it doesn't make financial sense but I wouldn't blame them for thinking it's just time to take their medicine and move on. It's a bit like deciding whether it's worth the hassle to deal with the ex just to get back those dozen DVDs you left behind.

This Solarte phenomenon is amazing. He's played in almost every Yanks game and started 2/3 of them. As a 26-year-old with NO stints in MLB before.
If he plays well, the upside is huge. He'll lose some of the steroid stigma, because he will be playing well without them.
