This A-Rod situation is getting RIDICULOUSLY messy RIGHT NOW.

He's making an appearance on sports radio right now and basically saying he's 100% fine but the Yankees aren't letting him play...

If I was Cashman/Girardi, I wouldn't want A-Rod around the team either. The questions that the rest of the team would have to endure everyday and the media circus wouldn't be worth it. It's not like he is the old A-Rod production wise either.

They aren't letting him play because they want him to get suspended before playing a game, which would presumably void his contract or at least a part of it, saving millions upon millions.

It has way more to do with money than the media circus or his play on the field.

They are desperate for help so on the field he's absolutely better than what they're trotting out there right now at DH and 3B.

It's a truly crazy story.

Arod went to see a different doctor for second opinion without letting Yankees know. That second opinion is invalid as he will receive a fine.

1st and 3rd opinions confirmed he has grade 1 strain. He is granted to stay in rehab for another week.


Commenting about Cashman trying to cheat Arod's money makes zero sense.

How is Braves' rotation shaped up after Hudson being out of season?

One of blogs' messages suggested Hughes for Gattis. I would love it but I am not sure how strong will Braves stay loyalty to McCann after this season?

He'll be below average the rest of the way. No way he comes back from Tommy John Surgery and just dominates. It took Wainwright at least 15-16 months to get his stuff back and he was never the same Waino last year.

Geez it sems like Lynn throws a billion pitches to get through 5 innings. 112 with 0 outs in the 7th right now.

It's not Cashman, it's the Steinbrenner sons. They're just worried about money and it doesn't seem like they give a **** if the Yanks win or not.

Cards with the sweep! and a nice 5-1 home stand. 25-games over .500 and 2.5 games up now!

Off to Atlanta tomorrow and then a huge 5 -game series vs the second place Pirates.

I'm at a Cubs minor league game (Double A). It makes me excited for the future. Lot of good prospects in this system!

VERY close. I was actually talking to my friend and I wasn't watching. I heard the hit. It sounded so great off the bat so I turned my head. He hit it to straight center and the CF basically has his back against the fence to catch it. Would have been a Grand Slam.

Also Sczur is so freaking fast. I don't know if he'll ever be good enough to be an everyday contributor for the Cubs but when he gets to the majors, he'll be one of the fastest guys in the league.

Cardinals were one of the teams that had a scout represented at Brian Wilson's workout. Cards don't need him but him, Mujica and Motte for next year. My god that would be pretty damn hilarious. All three are goons.

Mujica is not as good as he has shown this season. Expect a regression.

Alfi trade is approved by the MLB. Cubs get to pick from a list of pitching prospects, probably going to be Corey Black.

Cubs will pay $17.7M of his remaining $24.5M owed, with the Yanks picking up the other $6.8M. Yanks will pay $5M of his $18M owed for next year.

I actually disagree. Keeping A-Rod off the field and then praying something happens with this steroid stuff that voids his contract would help the Yankees win way more than A-Rod coming back in his current form.

Small guy, has been starting in Tampa and had some good results but trending downward lately. Long term bullpen guy, if things break right he'll be late game.

Ya, I think the big part of this is that the Cubs just wanted to get some cap relief and open up a roster spot. Black is intriguing after reading about him a bit, I'm not overly excited but who knows what can happen as he's only turning 22 and you can't teach players to throw hard like he does.

Either way, it's been fun Alfi. I enjoyed your time here even though most Cub fans expected unrealistic things from you. Hopefully you come back to play the Cubs at Wrigley and still chat it up with fans in the bleachers between outs.

I really enjoyed Soriano's time here. He's been one of my favorite players for the last decade. Sad to see him go but he just doesn't have a place on a last place team. As for the Yankees, is he a DH or do they put him in left?

Not true. Keeping Arod off the active roster will not trim some corners in budget. Arod had played on the field during the rehab clock so Yankees could not hide him once the rehab clock expired.

To "save" money, Arod has to be unable to play baseball. Yankees get insurance for that but it is later like 2 years. It won't affect luxury tax or cash spend of 2013.
