I don't think it's a bad move for Miami if NY is picking up a huge chunk of the contract. ARod could still put up decent numbers for Miami based on how much Miami would be paying him.
I wondered about the future of ARod even before this story came out. the other night when ARod was sitting on the bench late in the game the Yankees looked to have no interest in using ARod to pinch hit, and the announcer even talked about how ARod looked to have no interest to pinch hit himself either. I think it was the announcer then who said ARod has checked out.
Sounds like an idiot announcer, I'm guessing Sutcliffe.
at the time in that game it was still 2-0 late in the game. ARod was shown sitting on the bench. the announced commented that if the Yankees had interest in using ARod as a pinch hitter or if ARod wanted to pinch hit he would be down in the cage getting loose/staying loose. makes sense, unless Arod isn't healthy. a healthy ARod can still hit one out.
