As far as legacy goes, there's no real arguing that the Yankees pump of the image of their past players more than any other team. What other team has shows like "Yankeeography" or Old Timer's Day that pay tribute to the heroes of the past? The answer is no one else. While for most players this may not be a big deal, ARod cares about his image as much as anyone and NY is the single place that will have the most impact on that legacy.
While Yankee haters may choose not to believe it, the aura of the Yankees is real and thats why I think Alex stays (that and the extension they give him).
Heroes including Homer Bush.
