Just heard Michael Kay on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio (1050 AM in NYC) say that, according to a very close friend of Alex Rodriguez, A-Rod is nervous about the direction of the Yankees, and, A-Rod doesn’t want to be the guy who is blamed when the Yankees don’t win, but, still, A-Rod’s first choice in terms of where he wants to play is the Yankees.
Talk about an equation that doesn’t balance, huh?
Kay added that the source also said that A-Rod didn’t want to hear the Yankees offer on an extension because he feels that he’s earned the right to find out his worth on the open market – and didn’t want an extension that would cancel his chance to go to market.
Sing it with me ya’ll…
A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound,
A buck or a pound,
A buck or a pound.
Is all that makes A-Rod shop ’round,
That clinking clanking sound!
Can make Alex shop ’round.
