The other big news... A-Rod will be going back to the Yankees.
10 years, $275 million.
2 weeks ago, Yankee fans everywhere hated him (again.) Today, at least for now, he once again their hero. Ugh. I know his bat in the regular season is what makes this guy among the best players of my lifetime. But I must admit, I am thrilled we can't pursue him any longer. I didn't want him in a Red Sox uniform in '08, or for the next 10 years for that matter. Now I have one less thing to worry about. A lot can happen in 10 years. 10 years is obscene. They better hope this guy is never plagued with injuries, because this is a long time to pay a lot of money.
