Million Dollar Question – Will Alex Rodriguez Play Another Major League Game, And If So, Will It Be For The Yankees??
The major league baseball career of Alex Rodriguez appears to be in limbo.
What we do know is that as for now, A-Rod will not be playing during the 2014 regular season or postseason. He is allowed to return to major league game action in 2015. And he is under contract with the Yankees.
He has said that he will take the time off to rehab old injuries, get in game shape, and hone his skills.
He has said multiple times that he wants to return. And that he wants to play for the Yankees.
But, will he???
The relationship between Rodriguez and the team has surely soured as both sides have pointed fingers at one another over ‘he said / she said’ stuff as well as private medical issues being disclosed and made public.
To say that this whole things has been a horrible soap opera is an understatement.
My questions tonight are simple – Will Alex Rodriguez play in the majors again? And if so, will he play for the Yankees?
My thoughts, for now, are as such – I do believe that he will play again. I feel that he is owed way too much money to simply walk away from the game. And he also has some major milestones to bypass that I think he wants to go after – 660 home runs and 3,000 hits.
Now, the team he plays for is another thing completely. It is very likely that he never wears Yankees colors again, and if I was a betting man, I would say ‘No, not as a Yankee’. They are sour on him, and he has no problem calling them out.
I think someone will pick him up, and I think that the Yankees would be happy to take on a large part of the money left on his contract to ensure that he never wears pinstripes again.
What are your thoughts? Does he play again? And does he call New York home any longer?
Let me hear it!
