This thread is being based off of four playoff games.
Also, I can not for the life of me recall when fans liked a 100+ million dollar contract no matter who the player is. Theres a million reasons not to do it, and not making the move is always the safest thing to do.
Yankee fans are such whinny *****es (yes I know Im a yankee fan but still) Holy **** man, The man is nothing speical anymore, we all knew it was ganna get bad towards the end If you didn't go have your head checked out. With Arod there is no 09 World series, The first couple years were good now we are on the down swing of his great days. If he stays some what healthy he could still hit 30 in a regular season.

A contract is only bad when it hinders a team from getting other players imo. A-Rod's contract will not stop the Yankees from signing anybody they want bad enough. A guy may chose not to sign with them, but the Yanks will have the money to offer a big deal. A-Rod's role will continue to shrink on that team as the year go by and in the next 3 years if he does nothing, then I can see the Yanks just releasing him with 2 years left in the deal.
