Alex Rodriguez's agent hints A-Rod likely to opt out of contract and become free agent

NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez is ready to cash in. Again.

Agent Scott Boras hinted Tuesday that A-Rod will opt out of the final three seasons of his contract with the New York Yankees and seek a new deal in the free-agent market that will lock him up through his pursuit of Barry Bonds' home-run record.


New York likely will approach Boras with an extension offer in the next few weeks -- Rodriguez must make his decision whether to opt out by the 10th day after the World Series ends.

Rodriguez must weigh that offer against what he could get as a free agent, keeping in mind that the market for a player in the $30 million-a-year-range is limited.

I'll bet it's limited...

I don't care if he can fly, no ballplayer is worth $30 million. That's half the total payroll (or more than half) of three out of four of the teams in this year's league championship series. The Yankees had a payroll three times the size of that of the Indians, and they're going home for the winter.

Good luck finding a sucker to pay that amount. Oh, yeah, the Cubs are interested...
