Picture it: Yankee Stadium without Alex Rodriguez... or, how about this. A-Rod in red, or black, or orange... but not pinstripes. It's entirely possible that the star third-baseman will take advantage of an opt-out clause in his current, 10-year, $252 million contract, and sign on the dotted line for whichever team offers him even more money. It sounds crazy, right? I mean, hello! He's still got $91 million left in this contract, and he plays for one of the best (well, winningest and wealthiest) teams in baseball. According to his agent, though, it's time to head back to the MLB cash cow and milk out even more millions... maybe as much as $300 million for A-Rod's next ten years. What will A-Rod do? And who do you think will step up with the winning bid for his talents?
