Rest of this story: FOX Sports on MSN - MLB - Rodriguez finalizes $275M deal
I know this is a lot of money for one player, but A Rod is the best player in the Major Leagues, and yes grant it no baseball deserves this amount, but the Yankees have the money, and they offered him this so he would stay with them, so he did the right thing and accept the deal. The Yankees fan should be happy to have a player like A Rod, yes I know he hasn't performed well in the playoffs, but I believe that will change in the next few seasons.
if he remains with the team till he retires, and keeps the pace he's currently having, then he has a chance to become one of the best Yankee players of all time.
I'll bet it's more about wanting to keep A-Rod on the team to break the HR record, that way they can have a Yankee at the top of the HR list, again.
I don't think that's why the Yankees decided to re-sign Alex Rodriguez, they re-signed him because he's the best player in the Major Leagues, and they know what they're going to get with A Rod. Grant it that he has a chance to break the home run record has a member of the Yankees, and it's going to get them a lot a lot of publicity and money. But I doubt that's not the reason why they re-signed him.
I just think it's getting out of hand. I know players that are very good are rare in all sports but professional sports are going to lose a lot of fans soon. It seems in a lot of cases certain players are just "money players". They play hard when they want that new contract but they don't care if they win or lose. I think the should get good money but anything over 10 million a year in any sport is just unnecessary.
You have to understand that this sport makes a lot of money, and the Yankees revenue per year is unbelievable, the owners like George has the money, and need to spend money on players, yes I agree no player deserves this kind of money, but if they offer him this money then yes refuse it? He's the best player in the league, and plays well every season not just when he needs a new contract.
