Sports: A-Rod: The Yankees’ problem for nine more years

  • Is that a good thing? Alex Rodriguez, an amazingly-gifted baseball player, has also been a thorn in the New York Yankees’ side for a while already due to off-field drama. And he’s going to be there until at least 2018, when he’s old and (possibly) fat. The slugger, who was recently pinpointed as testing positive for steroids during his 2003 MVP season, will cost the Yankees as much as $300 million. And that contract’s so big that he’s basically untradeable. Good for him! source
