I still take the Post's sports page over any of them. Every day is like every other paper's Sunday sports. The Ledger is close but no cigar.

just a joke, i don't think A-Rod is going anywhere


just wait, in his last year of the agreed contract, he will ask for a trade to a contender. I told everyone.. he should have gone to the Mets or Yankees in 01

That's another 4 years from now. Arod's guaranteed contract is for 7 years.

At the time he signed the contract, I thought it was a good deal. Remember that Manny Ramirez had just signed an 8 year, 160 million dollar deal as well.

Now the deal doesn't look so good. The bottom fell out of the market and the Rangers are paying the price.

Prospects? The Yankees might have the worst system in baseball.
