Alex Rodriguez has come crawling back to the Yankees. It's a huge defeat for self-professed superagent Scott Boras as well as yet another failure of nerve in crunch time for the most controversial player in Major League Baseball.He wasn't going to get the absurd $350 million floated by Scott Boras and if he comes back at anything less than $30 million per--which was virtually assured him given his numbers in 2007--then the Yankees come out huge winners in the deal.
A-Rod has contacted his once-and-perhaps-future team about negotiating a new deal. One report said the Yankees are willing to talk to him with a couple of “ifs” the size of the Matterhorn attached: He’s got to take less money than he was making on his celebrated $25.2-million-a-year deal, and he can’t bring the Boracious agent into the negotiating room with him.
“Alex is going to be back with the Yankees,” one of the sources reportedly told the New York Daily News.
Let's just hope some year he shows up in October.
