    Why would he retire? There's nothing in it for him. Let's just hope he comes back and give us some solid years.

    a-rod won't retire. Just look at the remaining money on his deal. He will do everything to get back on the field... If he cannot, then he will sit on the DL until the deal expires then retire (he collects the $$$ like Albert Belle did with Orioles years ago). If he retires now, he gives up that money... If he is PUP, then and insurance policy kicks in to pay the remainder of his contract for the Yanks....and he files retirement paperwork after the contract expires.

    But no, he won't be retiring... unless he feels he don't need any more $$$$

    If ARod can't play he'll do what every other baseball player does - sit around and collect their money.

    There's really no reason to think he would do this.

    ARod cares too much about what people think about him to go out on a bad note. He will do all he can to come back as strong as possible.

    OMG if this happened, it would be open season. Show everyone who the real Yankees are. Lol


    But, he isn't walking away from 115 million over 5 years. I could maybe see them work something out where they pay X amount of dollars up front, and have a good day. But doubt it.

    If he is Physically Unable to Perform, then an insurance policy will normally kick in to finish paying him. But, he actually has to be PUP... If he just wants to quit, then he has to retire, and he loses the cash.

    In either scenario, he would come off the Yanks books... Still, I would much rather see him come back to playing in form.

    This 'rumor' is just that - there is no way ARod would do that....he is wayy too selfish to go out this way. He'd rather handcuff the yankees until he's either out due to roids and his body just can't take it no more or has a mental breakdown due to his super-sized ego!

    But OMG - I would throw a block party if he DID actually do it!!!
    GO YANKEES!!!!!

    Let's be serious here, I don't see him retiring... but crazier things have happened.

    That said, if he does retire, I'll be pretty sad. I really wanted him to make a run at that home runs record, and while he has become somewhat of a liability, I definitely thought he took his postseason benching in stride. He's been unlucky with injuries, but he has given us some great memories (2009 World Series, and being a monster his first few years here), although in fairness there has been a ton of drama to go along with it. But last postseason, as terrible as that was for all of us, he seemed to be genuinely invested in making the team better, and he knew that he was not the answer. That's maturity.

    All in all, if he does have to hang it up, it'll be a few years too soon IMO. Obviously great for freeing up money in the future, but I'll be sad. Excited for the future, but sad for the sake of his career. Sucks not being able to do what you love.
    O-H-I-O!

    I'd hate to see him go out like this. Wish he would just grow a sac and take a pay cut and restructure his contract. It wouldn't look so bad if he took a 50 percent pay cut.

    If Arod sits out 6 months or longer in one shot, the Yanks are covered for 70-80% of his salary of that time period.

    This does not affect the cap at all, it's just a reimburse.

    Do not speak to people on here about numbers. Most are still in middle school.
