Rodriguez wants the door to remain open

From Mark Feinsand:

Alex Rodriguez's career in pinstripes came to an end when he opted out of his contract on Sunday night. Or did it?

The Yankees have made it clear that they have no plans to bid on Rodriguez when free agency gets underway, but a source with knowledge of the situation said Rodriguez is hoping that the Bombers reconsider their stance.

"Alex wants the Yankees to be a part of this, because the opt-out was not done with the intention of saying goodbye to the Yankees," said the source. "Alex wants to see what his market value is, but that doesn't mean he necessarily wants to leave the Yankees." (New York Daily News)

If this were true, Scott Boras wouldn't have given Brian Cashman 10 minutes between voicemails and text messages. If this were true, Rodriguez would control Boras and tell him not to make any moves during Game 4 of the World Series. If this were true, Rodriguez would have negotiated an extension on his own.

I'm not buying this one bit. Rodriguez knew opting out of his contract would result in cutting ties with the Yankees.

Alex Rodriguez is done as a New York Yankee.

I have a hot tip on Alex Rodriguez signing with the Dodgers within the next 10 days.

I just got off a pretty interesting phone call with a close friend that you’re gonna want to hear about....

This morning a very close friend of mine (a Hollywood actor who has starring roles in movies that have grossed 100+ million in the recent past) grabbed an early brunch with friends, one person in the party being an undisclosed high ranking MLB official and another being a member of Alex Rodriguez's management, in Los Angeles. At this brunch terms of Rodriguez’s soon to be signed “5 year contract” we’re discussed in detail. It's very juicy and I threw up a quick story.
