Yanks must have nearing cutoff date to buy out A-Rod, Teixeira | New York Post

The fans are cognizant of the results: a combined 11 homers, 38 RBIs, .595 OPS and a slash line of .199/.268/.327. Rodriguez and Teixeira are walking less (8.4 percent of plate appearances compared with 13.2 last year) and whiffing more (27.8/21.3), symbolic of pitchers fearing them less and challenging them more.

This would be no easy decision. A-Rod and Teixeira helped the 2009 Yanks win a title and have had brilliant careers — albeit in Rodriguez’s case tainted by PEDs. Then there is the money. Teixeira (at $22.5 million) is in the final year of his contract. Rodriguez is being paid $20 million this year and next. From this point forward, the Yanks owe the duo approximately $45.4 million.

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.
