• Yankee Player To Be Paid $45.5 Million For Season In 2014

    Think about it.

    Alex Rodriguez will receive $6 million when he reaches each of five milestones: the career home run totals of Willie Mays (660), Babe Ruth (714), Henry Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762), and when he breaks the record. This is above his annual salary of $27.5 million.

    A-Rod should reach 660 homers in 2011. And, he should reach 714 homers in 2012.

    But, come 2014, during that year, A-Rod should be reaching his 755th, 762nd and 763rd career homeruns in the season.

    So, when you add $6 million times three to the $27.5 million, Alex Rodriguez will earn $45.5 million in 2014.

    Some payday, huh?

      Should the Yanks send a blank check to the Giants or A’s so they can sign Bonds? That way he can keep on hitting HR’s and push the total higher, thus making A-Rod’s incentive clauses tougher to reach?

      I suppose they could, but they have no place to play him. LF, DH, & 1b (if Bonds had any interest in playing there) are all occupied.

      If someone gets moved that may be the case, but I don’t see it.
