    UNCONFIRMED ARod may retire.

    This is unconfirmed but I read two articles in the last two hours that report that Alex has told some people close to him that he is not against hanging it up if rehab does not exceed expectaions. He stated he is aware that he has become a big liability to the team and has more than enough money to leave the game.

    It would be the classy thing to do.

    As I stated, published but unconfirmed and I lost the two links.

    Arod retires, the team signs Cano to a massive extension and the cycle continues...

    Somehow i think this is dif...i think Yankees officially start over..If cano doesn't comply he get traded for major prospects. Remember Cano is not a leader like Jeter or Mariano, so he will not get the BOD.

    If more Knicks players had the heart of John Starks, we'd have more rings.

    I say "wet dream" but this tops it. If ARod does some how retire wow, I'd be so thrilled. So many possibilities none of which include signing ANY of these current FA's or even next years class.

    Great sources. Smart baseball people know this.

    If his doctors say that he's not physically able to play baseball.. Insurance will cover 70% of his contract... So he'll still collect every penny and not worry about all the bashing... But would his contract still count towards the cap like it does in the nba???

    Why do people feel that the idea is so far fetched?

    Guy clearly doesn't need the money and I'm sure he wont go out as a singles hitter/part time player for the next 5 years.

    Plus, it's gotta be no small feat to try and come back from this at 37 and now this makes both hips. Yikes.

    I see Arod giving it a try but ultimately retiring like a boss, and running around the world with the model of the week.

    I would jump for joy if this really happens. But I dont see him walking away from $150 million.

    Arod loves three things, money, girls, and himself. He's not walking away from $150 million.

    Another non-story, if Jeter can't come back from his rehab, he will retire, it happens when you are on the other side of 35..it's called life!!
