...how much money will the Yankees throw at the commissioner so that doesn't happen. heros are so hard to find.
Actually I wouldn't doubt its just the opposite and the Yankees are trying to get the commissioner's office to ban him so they can get out from under his contract.
...except it taints every world series they've won with him playing.
His lawyer has already said they will fight any disciplinary action from MLB, could be a fun show.
I'm sure the Yanks are thrilled at the possibility of voiding the remainder of his contract, they want nothing more to do with the asswipe.
...they'll let him retire to avoid the ban.
The prodigal son returns and jacks a first pitch HR. The Yankees want A-rod gone.
The Yankees are praying he's banned for life. They'd do just about anything to get out from under that contract...LOL
Only won one with him, in '09.
So you mean... 1...
the yankees and yankee fans would love to be rid of that albatross.
as a masshole sox fan living in exile in new york, i hope they're fucking stuck with him and that he plays just enough to stay on the payroll.
...its just my opinion. I don't give a fuck one way or another. theyre all over paid whiny asswipes.
...I wouldn't know if its 1 or 100. baseball isn't what it use to be but if people want to spend their money emotionally wrapped up in a fucking ball me no care.
You know that now that Im older... I was a great athlete as a kid. I totally realize IF I took steroids I would have made it as a professional. This whole past era was my era & seeing all the cheaters, I could have made it as a Pro if I cheated. I was really really good, but not good enough... if I cheated I would have made it.
...thanks. id rather watch b&b than baseball. or football. or hockey.
Not to be an asshole to you, but I haven't taken a single World Series, starting with 1995, seriously. And that's the one the Braves won, but it was the WS after the strike. A lot of people were like me, too, when they stopped paying attention to baseball after the strike. So what did baseball cook up?
The steroid era, records being toppled by juiced players, etc. Any serious baseball fan knew in 1998 the fix was in, yet so many people got suckered into the "race" for Maris' record; a record that still stands at 61 in my mind to this day. Just as Aaron's HR record of 755. I can rattle off legit stats easily. 714, 755, 61, 660, 536, 2,632, 4,256, etc. (Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Roger Maris, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Cal Ripken Jr., Pete Rose). Anything starting after 1995 is a joke.
Everyone knew about the juice. Players, owners, media, and any fan with a brain.
A picture is worth a million words:
Just look at team pics before 1995 and after 1995. The pre-95 teams look like high schoolers and the post 95 teams look like, well, roided up brutes. When's the last time we saw a hit-and-run team? We don't anymore. Suicide-squeeze? Doesn't happen anymore.
Baseball changed because their fans changed. Legit fans left the game after the strike and stayed gone after the roids era got rolling and a bunch of noobs who enjoy watching fireworks took over.
So any tainting of a WS ring is redundant for all post '95 winners, IMO.
Sorry if I offended but baseball was my first heartbreak as a kid. They betrayed us all. Unfortunately too many fans went along with it.
Wasn't looking to bust balls, just saying he meant little to the franchise and they'd be glad to be rid of him. The Yanks wanted him in pinstripes when he broke a bunch of prime MLB batting records, that ain't going to happen now.
What I want to see is a contributory negligence suit filed against the owners and Selig. Especially that fucker Selig.
After the Giammatti debacle with Vincent's short takeover, baseball was doomed with the non-commisioner status and then that fuck Selig taking it over.
The owners knew of the roids. Managers and coaches knew. Why not prosecute some of them?
And the media. . . . they juiced up the juiced-up players all while knowing the players were juicing. Where were the great columnists to call out baseball? Where were the traditionalists?
Oh yeah, they were marginalized; called old-fashioned. Such a sham.
This whole A-Rod thing is window-dressing; cover for MLB and the owners to say, "we're trying to clean ourselves up!"
Take away their anti-trust exception and back-tax them for all the years they enjoyed the status, ban some owners (been done before) who contributed to the roid-era, and do weekly tests of players (including off-season) and I'll believe baseball is actually cleaning house.
This other shit is nothing but window-dressing.
