Daily News: Yankees talking to A-Rod

From Mark Feinsand and Bill Madden:

Despite all of the back-and-forth posturing between the Yankees and A-Rod' camp, the Daily News learned today that the two sides have been discussing a deal for the past few days to keep the two-time MVP in pinstripes, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The biggest catch? The Yankees don't want agent Scott Boras involved in the negotiations.

A high-ranking Yankees source told the Daily News that the team is willing to bring Rodriguez back on a below-market contract, one that would make up for the $21 million subsidy from the Rangers that the Yanks lost when A-Rod opted out of the final three years of his contract. (New York Daily News)

This is yet another installment in the soap opera that is Alex Rodriguez's career.

This source referred to in this article later says that Rodriguez will be a Yankee next year. Rodriguez was disliked by many Yankee fans before this fiasco. If Rodriguez indeed comes back next year, it'll be very interesting to see how he is treated.

Throughout the season, the Yankees were adamant that they would not negotiate with Rodriguez if he opted out. The new front office will come out looking like hypocrites if they bring him back.

This truely is a soap opera now. I also heard that ARod is leaving his wife for Lindsey Lohan and that the new 3B will be Paris Hilton (That's Hot Corner) LOL

Nice one, John.

But seriously, Sox Appeal has nothing on this drama. Just video tape Boras for the next two weeks, it'll be quality TV.
