I wonder how much this would **** off the Yankees. From the NY Daily News:

"Alex Rodriguez has 114 million reasons to get back on the field. According to sources close to the ongoing drama surrounding the star-crossed Yankee third baseman, Rodriguez and his advisers are so concerned that Major League Baseball's drug posse is quickly closing in on him that they have racheted up the timetable for him to return to game action. Once he's back playing in rehab games, the sources say, he could then claim he is physically unable to perform because of the serious hip injury he is recovering from, "retire" from the game, and still collect the full amount of his salary -- $114 million over the next five years. "It's all about him getting his money and not losing it to suspension," one source close to the situation told the Daily News."

Could that be why Cashman was ******? Are the Yankees trying to stall clearing him for game action?

That doesn't make any sense. Even if Arod is on the DL (or DL "retired"), he can still be suspended and lose pay.

The "source close to the situation" doesn't know what the **** they are talking about.

Suckiano might be headed back to NY! I'm not holdingmy breath, but DAMN I'd like to see him finally outta Chicago. I'd be happy if they traded him for a bag of balls.

We'll take him.   Might be our third best hitter when he returns.

One step closer!

He vetoed one last year or the year before, so at least this obstacle has been cleared.

I'll buy the bag of balls if Hank and Hal can't find the money.

What about that little issue of salary?
7/25/2013 5:23 AM
SCRUBS WILL PAY MOST OF IT

Cubs send $17.7M+Suckiano for some A-ball guy that will likely never make it to the show.

Horrible return, but I'm still OVERJOYED!!!

In the last month, Soriano has more homers than the Yankees.

7m for the next 1 1/2 years?   I'll take it!!!!
