A-Rod eating crow?

Official statement from Alex Rodriguez


11/14/2007 3:27 PM ET
After spending time with Cynthia and my family over these last few weeks, it became clear to me that I needed to make an attempt to engage the Yankees regarding my future with the organization.

Prior to entering into serious negotiations with other clubs, I wanted the opportunity to share my thoughts directly with Yankees' ownership. We know there are other opportunities for us, but Cynthia and I have a foundation with the club that has brought us comfort, stability and happiness.

As a result, I reached out to the Yankees through mutual friends and conveyed that message. I also understand that I had to respond to certain Yankees concerns, and I was receptive and understanding of that situation.

Cynthia and I have since spoken directly with the Steinbrenner family. During these healthy discussions, both sides were able to share honest feelings and hopes with one another, and we expect to continue this dialogue with the Yankees over the next few days.

Where else is he going to go? No one else is going to pay him what the Yankees will and still be able to field a competative team. In order for Yankee fans to forgive him, he has to come back with his tail between his legs. I think his statment shows he is willing to do that. A-Rod was just getting comfortable as a Yankee, as shown by his season numbers. To leave now would require another adjustment period with a diferent team. Yankee fans have a short memory, As long as he's producing, they will love him. I think Yankee fans will even forgive him for this years playoff loss. All the Yanks had terrible post season number not just A-Rod. If it were not for A-Rod the Yankees would have never made it to the post season.
