    This latest setback to ARod didnt surprise me one bit... the Yankees should have realized this a long time ago and probably just moved on with a backup that is more durable than Chavez. ARod will never be the same again and we are stuck with him.
    GO YANKEES!!!!!

    Agreed. Either defer the money over X amount of years. orr just pay the whole god damn ****ing thing off in one shot and goodbye! I've had enough.

    I LOVED when we got A-Rod, and watching him just mash at YS. But since that WS win, it has been a straight nosedive.

    Can't do the payoff. Still counts towards cap.

    Like Bay.

    Doesn't help to just pay him $114million to go home.

    As fa r as I'm concerned, he can missed the rest of his career in a Yankee Uniform. Never wanted him resigned after he opted out. Given all of the information that had already been out there on 'roids, I can't understand why in the first case he was resigned to that ridiculous contract, and second why there wasn't a team out clause that would have kicked in if he had been discovered to have used 'roids.

    Makes you wonder what dirty secret Boras and Co' had on Hank or a relative -- to agree to that asinine contract.

    Why Cashman still believes in ARod

    To think A-Rod could still be an impact player required a significant leap of faith. So the news that he will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum and other issues in his left hip and miss perhaps half the 2013 season is something tangible to deal with.

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman called the problems "fixable," and he seemed confident of getting some more good years out of Rodriguez. Doctors did a similar procedure on A-Rod's right hip in 2008, and when he returned in 2009, he drove in 100 runs in 124 games and batted .365 in the postseason, leading the Yankees to their 27th championship.

    If he did it once, why can't he do it again? Does it make sense that one of the hardest-working, most conscientious and productive players of our time would suddenly be toast at 37?

    This isn't about performance-enhancing drugs, either. Alex Rodriguez didn't build a 19-year career simply on steroids, even though there are justifiable questions about whether steroid use contributed to both hips breaking down. If performance-enhancing drugs enhanced A-Rod's productivity, they didn't contribute to a skill set that was off the charts.

    The more I think about it the more Brian makes sense. The odds are that ARod will have the last laugh at all the naysayers.
    We sure could use him being the hitting stud he was.

    We have no outs with his contract, 37, off of hip surgery, bloated contract... we need to hope he returns as a home run hitting Yankee. What would you suggest Cashman to say even if they were to deal him in the offseason?

    I would expect Cashman to say lets go get Josh Hamilton and Stephen Drew and re-sign Ichiro

    Or he will continue to sit on fastballs and look like a shell of the former player he was. All while not producing in the postseason and failing to live up to the rest of his contract.

    Give David Adams and Eduardo Nunez a chance to prove themselves. Battle it out for Third Base.
    Bring in a lefty like Stephen Drew to compliment them. Place him in the Eric Chavez role.
    He can also play SS which will be valuable to the Yankees in the long run of a season.
    Right now what the team is looking at is no Arod and a battered Derek Jeter.
    Overpaying for more broken down talent is useless. Letting the young guys play seems best.
    Someway, somehow, the Yankees need to do whatever possible to unload themselves of Arod in the future.
    For the time being however, they need to address Third Base now, as well as Right Field, and Catcher...
