When $72 Million Is Not Enough


Wow.

Former Ranger Alex Rodriguez could have played out the remaining three years of his contract with the Yankees and, by doing so, he would have been guaranteed $72 million. But his contract gives him the right to "opt out" and become a free agent in order to go to the highest bidder.

The man did it yesterday. Amazing.

But the champagne bottles you hear popping are from the home of Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks who will no longer be responsible for $21 million that he would have had to pay to the Yankees if he had stayed. (Part of a screwed up trade.)

Speculation is that he already knows there is a bigger deal for him out there. I guess not at New York however.
