Straight from the “No S**t, Sherlock” department, Tom Hicks says that he regrets offering Alex Rodriguez his then-record 10 year, $252 million contract in 2001.
If I had to put one team (the Rangers) into bankruptcy, still owed Alex Rodriguez $25M and had a restive creditor (The Royal Bank of Scotland) pushing my sale of another team (Liverpool FC), I’d be in a pretty sour mood too. As such, it’s no surprise that Tom Hicks isn’t a big fan of A-Rod’s these days. One could argue that Hicks’s own stupidity — manifested most “brilliantly” by the A-Rod deal — has led him to where he is today.
In any case, Tom, it was nice knowing you. You no longer matter.
