Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez relishing role as elder in clubhouse - NY Daily News

As long as ARod produces Yankees fans will love him. He’s no Jeter though. If he’s hitting .220 with 6 homers at the break, they will be calling for his head.

A-Rod, at 40, raring to go as Yankees’ spring training approaches | Newsday

He has spent the winter working out, spending time with his two daughters and “trying to get this old body ready to go again,’’ he said by phone from Miami yesterday. “I’ve only been 40 once, but it is new territory. I embrace it. One thing about this game, it has a funny way of humbling you and it’s such a difficult game to play every day. It’s so much of a better game today than when I first came in 1994. The young talent is as good as I’ve ever seen it.’’

Alex Rodriguez $252 million contract with Texas Rangers remains landmark on 15th anniversary

Rodriguez exercised his right to void the final three years of the contract after seven seasons, and agent Scott Boras revealed the news during the eighth inning of Game 4 of the 2007 World Series—just as the rival Red Sox were putting the finishing touches on a sweep of the Rockies. Yankees executive Hank Steinbrenner initially said there was “no chance” the team would re-sign Rodriguez, but six weeks later Rodriguez inked a new 10-year, $275 million deal with New York.
