From the AP:
Alex Rodriguez declined to talk about his contract situation Thursday, one day after Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he would not discuss an extension with the third baseman.
Rodriguez has four seasons left in the record $252 million, 10-year agreement he signed with Texas before the 2001 season, but he can opt out of the deal after this season.
He is owed $27 million in each of the final three seasons – with the Yankees responsible for $50.7 million and the Rangers owing $30.3 million, including $9 million in deferred money.
”It can come up every day of the year,” Rodriguez said Thursday before departing for a road spring training game against Cincinnati. ”I’m going to give you the same answer. Nothing has changed. I’m not going to talk about my contract.”
Don’t you just hate it when people make promises that you know they can’t keep?
