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.
