• Tom Hicks Regrets Mistake In Career Full Of Them

    Posted by on October 15th, 2010 · Comments (2)

    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.

      Then of course is the Steinbrenners giving Arod exactly what he wanted until he reaches Social Security age despite the fact that he opted out of his contract and no one was bidding against the Yanks.

      The difference, of course, is that the Yankees can afford A-Rod. The Rangers never could.
