If I'm the Yanks and Im not cutting him regardless.
Only way he's off the team is by trade, IMO.
Even if he's traded no team will take on that salary, the Yankees must pay regardless.
With that being said, why wouldnt you try to trade him if the Yankees are paying his salary regardless? LOL
The Yankees should try to trade ARod. See if anyone would take on maybe 1/3 of his salary. $113M/5 years is what is left on his contract. Why would the Yankees be willing to dump that for nothing? What if a team Would be willing to pay 7 mil a year for the rest of his contract? Hell, what if a team was willing to pay 4 mil a year for the rest of his contract? That certainly would be better than cutting him all together right?
