In the eyes of that lawyer, an argument could be made — maybe successfully, maybe not — that Rodriguez’s actions have diminished the Yankees’ brand.
Well, maybe, another way to say/ask it is: With the mess that A-Rod has created for himself now, does it help the Yankees brand (since he is associated with the team)? And, if the answer is “no,” then he’s either hurting it or not impacting it.
And, I can’t see how it’s not impacting it…right?
