If A-Rod makes good on his
promise threat to show up at spring training, like the bad fairy in a Brothers Grimm tale, the Yankees don’t have to let him into their major league camp.
Since he’s not on their 40-man roster because of his suspension, they can send him to minor-league camp.
A-Rod says he’s going to spring training for the Yankees.
As what, a bat boy?
It’s been a great day for the Yanks — who doesn’t like to wake up to an extra $25 million in their bank account? Just sign here, Mr. Tanaka. Arigatou.
A-Rod’s 211-game suspension has been reduced to 162 games — the entire 2014 regular season — plus any post-season games the Yankees might play.
He is planning to sue in federal court — good luck with that!

I’m sticking to my prediction that A-Rod won’t ever play for the Yanks again.

As the Yankees head to below .500 territory, I feel much more hopeful each time Raul Ibanez or Eric Chavez comes to bat than when A-Rod does. I feel as if something other than hitting into a double play might happen.
Raul Ibanez is making $1.1 million this year.
Eric Chavez is making $900,000 this year.
A-Rod is making $29 million this year.
What’s wrong with this picture?
