I might retire next year if $100M falls on my head, but it probably won't happen.

Well, duh. If $100M fell on your head, you'd be a vegetable at best. Consider that forced retirement.

Better watch it. You almost sounded like a Cub fan there for a sec.

Later in the same interview, he was much more ambiguous, saying stuff like (paraphrasing) "well we'll see what happens, I'm not sure." Reminded me of Favre. But yeah, I don't really buy it.

They pulled something up from 3 months ago, just so they could kick their favorite dog.
I love how they tried to play it off too, "Its News cus nobody heard it back then"

Yeah what ever. ;-7


well said


I think the pressure yankee fans put on some of their players mentally hurts them. A-rod had a good season last year, and just because he did not put up MVP type numbers many are calling his 2006 season a failure. He still produced and won games for the club, and no way is he a liability out there. I do not see how that is a failure, and hey if all else fails send him to Chicago ;-)

That's funny. I thought A-Rod retired three years ago. And had just been going through the motions ever since.

It is a good thing he did not retire 3 years ago, or he would have not put up arguably his best season in 2005.
