2 years have passed and here comes the pain...
alright cashman. Ninja GM time
I just read Arod is going to have surgery on his hip and miss part of 2013. Things just keep on getting worse.
That came from Ken Rosenthal
It should be interesting to see what NY does here. Does anyone know a time frame on his return? I'm not seeing anything indicating how much of the season he might miss.
What does Hank have to do with anything? It was George who signed him to that deal after the opt out.

However, those criticizing him for not being in shape and not working hard is a joke. It has been widely reported that ARod is obsessive with working out and is the hardest working guy in the game. Even if that took a small step back he would still be harder working than most. Really can't criticize him for not working hard.
I HATE SEEING ANYONE SUFFER FROM AN INJURY IN OR OUT OF SPORTS.

Suck up the huge loss and stop making believe he is still or will still be great.
I feel bad for him and wish he was in prime condition so he could beat the snot out of our opposition. It looks like that may just be fantasy and in reality, the ARod thing is over. That stinks. I have seen him play many times in person and like him or not he stands out when he is on that field.
I've never once questioned Arods work ethic. Its second to none. I think Hank had the most say in negotiating Arods current contract. I just wish the Yankees could move on from him and his contract. Thanks for the memories but its time to move on.

He cannot drive the ball any longer. And if this latest injury is related to his last one, he is done, will not see the field again, and will retire after 2013.
Yes he is a money grabber but he will not hang around for 4-5 years just to collect a check. They will cut a deal, he will retire and join the ownership crew in Miami. His fire is gone. Will never be in the Hall and doesn't want to hang around and ride pine when he can get a buyout and be a perfect owner of the Marlins.
Mark my words. He's done. 2013 will be it. He will fight thru the pain but, He will retire/get bought out etc before 2014 and one day own the Marlins.
And I love Arod. He got a bad wrap his whole career even though he brought it on himself in some cases.
Chavy's agent is smiling somewhere.

Just heard on the Fan that ARod was in the emergency room during the playoffs.. It's not confirmed though..
its not the hip he had initially had surgery on
last time he had hip surgery we won a WS lets go AROD! :D
Alex Rodriguez will need between three and six months to recover from his January hip surgery.
He is done.
Yank will try to tell everybody he could still play 3rd base, but internally they know he can't and the yanks could and will be screwed.
If they knew this in the playoffs why not just say something and not play him. Why all this drama with if can't play, he can't play.
Cahman do your stuff. Well whatever Hal and Hank let you do.
The yank now need a 3rd base, catcher and right fielder and good bench players.
