He was great last year and is still putting up solid numbers this season. I think he just needs a day or two off to settle down a bit. He's also been battling a bit of a cold or flu or something this past week, so I'll give him a bit of a pass there. As miserable as he has been in the field, I can't help but remember how solid he was there last season. Hopefully he'll get some work in over the winter and get back in form. I definitely don't want to see him get traded. Give the guy a break once in awhile, it's not always his fault when the Yanks lose.

Yanks are only paying him 14 Million of their own money this year.

He is like the 3rd or 4th highest paid player on the Yankees salary.

Unfortunately he has a no trade clause, so the only way to get rid of him is to make him want to go.

And we pay 16 M on avg a year for the new choking K-Rod.

no-trade clause
$0.1M All Star incentive

MVP bonus
$0.5M for 2003 AL MVP award

$1M for 2005 AL MVP award

After 1 year (12/01), Rodriguez agreed to defer $45M in salary to 2011-20 at 3% (later reduced)
waived NTC 2/04, allowing trade to NY with 7 years/$183M remaining
Texas agreed to pay remaining $4M in signing bonus & $67M of remaining $179M in salary
New York agreed to pay $112 of the remaining $179M in salary

He's not going to go anywhere.

1)Were would he even want to go?
2)Who could afford to pay his salary?
3)He's not the only one responsible when the Yanks lose games. Sure, he's been struggling a bit, but he still has nearly 100 RBI's and should finish with 30+ HRs. The guy still produces big numbers, but everyone expects something extra from him because of his contract. Give the guy a break. It's not all his fault.

Yeah I expect more than do-nothingness in games 4-7 of the an ALCS...in games 1-5 of an ALDS. I expect more than Hrs in May up or down 10-2.

I wasn't talking on average.

I was talking about what we pay him THIS year.

This year, these are the players that the Yankees are actually paying the most.

Giambi - 18mil
Jeter - 18mil
ARod- 14 Million
And finally ARod.

Under the deal, the Yankees pay Rodriguez $15 million in each of the next three seasons, $16 million each in 2007 and 2008, $17 million in 2009 and $18 million in 2010, according to contract information obtained by the AP from player and management sources.

In each of the first four years, $1 million will be deferred without interest, to be paid in 2011.

The trade calls for Texas to pay $43 million of Rodriguez's salary over the remaining seven years: $3 million in 2004, $6 million each in 2005, 2006 and 2010, $7 million apiece in 2007 and 2009 and $8 million in 2008. In addition, the Rangers will pay the $24 million remaining in deferred money from the original contract, with the interest rate lowered from 3 percent to 1.75 percent.

All the deferred money owed by Texas -- $36 million including salaries from 2001 to 2003 -- will be lumped with the original $10 million signing bonus, of which $4 million is still owed. The payout schedule will be pushed back to 2016-2025 from 2011-20.

So here is the calculation:

$25M original salary in 2006
(4M) deferred by TX
(6M) paid by TX
(1M) deferred by NYY
$14M paid by NYY

The Yanks are paying $14M this year plus $1M more deferred, but that won't be paid until 2011 (along with $1M for each of the past two seasons and next year). That's where the $4M from 2011 comes from.


Under the deal, the Yankees pay Rodriguez $15 million in each of the next three seasons, $16 million each in 2007 and 2008, $17 million in 2009 and $18 million in 2010, according to contract information obtained by the AP from player and management sources.
In each of the first four years, $1 million will be deferred without interest, to be paid in 2011.

Do you expect the same from Jeter? Rivera? Sheff? Matsui? Bernie?

Obviously not. Fool.

no way we get equal value from him. his worst year is still better then the rest of the third basemen's best years. Besides 14 to 15 million for him is actually pretty cheap. It could cost boston twice that for matsuzaka 8-o
