Thinking the Yankees would have to eat 75% of his contract. If not, then at least half of it.
50% of his contract paid, and probably a couple of nobody/never-will-be prospects.
Or a large half pepperoni from Famiglia
FC Bayern Munchen
New York Yankees
All depends on what the Yanks are willing to eat. AL teams will be more interested because he needs to DH at least some. Though with interleague year round an NL team could bite I suppose.
About a quarter of his salary. Maybe more like a third.

about a $1.25....
Dude is a Loser.
Im a lifelong yankees fan and ive hated this signing since day one.
I dont know what the ingredients are.
i dont know why Guys like A-rod and Tony Romo and Jeff George can have all the measurables in the world and find a way to choke, All I do know is that they are chokers.
the dynasty Yankees of the 90s were nowhere near as talented as these guys, but the choker virus follwed this chump into the club house.
2.3 bWAR suggests between 10-15M / year. If he was a free agent, he'd probably be lucky to get 4/40. He's owed 5/119, so he's worth about 1/3 of his contract.
-HeymanAL scout on arod: "I can't believe anyone would be interested." #114MIL plus #30MIL in milestone HR bonuses
The Yankees would have to take on 2/3rds of his contract, at which point they'd be better off keeping him.
According to some writer, two GM's told them the most they'd give is $5M for a 1 year prove it deal. That's a bigger hit on the Yanks than 2/3.
It's also thought that sitting him in the playoffs is a message. Relent on your no trade so we can deal you to Miami (or wherever).
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
Continued to merge the A-Rod threads.
that is now 7 A-Rod threads in the last week. just keep it all in one place. If you have a new question, ask it here
If he was a Free Agent this season, he would probably get a 2 year deal worth around 25-30 million (like Beltran level) to go to an AL team and there would probably be a 3rd year option.
So yeah, he is no where close to his deals value, but he wouldn't just be cut either. He can still be a useful player
According to fangraphs, about 9.8 million.
