wally seems very nervous that arod wants to resign with the yanks. the media cracks me up, they were so certain that arod would leave; even though he told them all along he wanted to be a yankee..

My money's on A-Rod leaving NY. It's quite apparent that he is not getting the Yankees to the Big Game and you know how he and his wife like the NY Media. I hope the Red Sox get him then I'd LMAO.

Wally watches an episode of "The Bronx is Burning" and now he knows all about the 1977 yankees. What a joke. HACK!

Wouldn't blame A-Rod at all for leaving.
He'll get lucrative offers from elsewhere. He won't have to deal with the New York stalk-arazzi and a schizo fan-base that screams epithets at him one day and gives him standing ovations the next.
A-Rod seems like a pretty shallow human being, but he is talented and consistently follows the money, which will be available in other cities where he can maintain a lower profile.

Boras should be boiled in oil. Just looking at him is sickening.

Wally hates the Yankees and loves to stir up as much misery as he can regardless of whether stories are true or not. He loves to stir the pot. Now for the reality check: the Yankees drive the market for any free agent whether they want the player or not. No one else spends what they spend. You can be sure the Boras wants them in the mix.

Wally, you're a hack. Why not just write for the Boston Globe with the rest of the Yankee haters.

The team that initially signed A-Rod for that contract were suckers. The team that took that contract were suckers. The team that signs him next will be suckers.

When all is said and done, A-Rod will be the highest paid player in the history of American team sports with no championship to show for it.

He should have signed with Boston. He would have contended for a title, would still be playing shortstop in front of fans that would have appriciated him.

Be careful for what you ask for in life. That saying is taylor made for Alex R.. He wanted the money, he wanted New York. Well Roddie, you got it. How happy are you now???

Break policy for a guy that has done NOTHING in pinstripes and tell Mariano "we'll talk after the season" is utterly criminal.

You're a moron. And so is Wallace Matthews for not pointing out this sort of important fact why they are negotiating now instead of after the season: If he opts out, Texas no longer has to pay their share for the last 3 years left of the existing contract. The Yankees want to give him an "extension" beyond the 3 years so they can save the money for the last 3 years of the existing contract. If they dont do it now, he'll opt out and they will ahve to pony up the full price for every year if they resign him after the fact. It's not about disrespecting Mariano or anyone else on the team. This is a different kind of case that just the normal "in season negotiating". Too bad you and Wally (who's just trying to stir up drama where there isn't any) are ignorant pieces of human waste.

Wally,

First of all, you're a fool.

Secondly, where did you get your facts that the Yanks are only paying 60% of AROD's salary. I have heard and read it is much higher.
As a reader, I have grown weary of your blatant lying.
It's one thing to be a negative, low life, bottom feeder like you have always been; but now adding liar to it is really increasing your chances of reaching hell a lot sooner then it would have. Keep up the shoddy work.

I will spit-shine your shoes and drive your spaceship back to Mars. Hughes and Wang will be very good down the stretch, but the Yankees will not win the division. I am not a Yankees hater, just a realist.

If the Yankees do pull off a miracle and win the division or go even further, you can bet that Wally's column will be a slam on them regardless. He is so predictable with his negative columns on the Yankees. The guy who called him a bottom feeder is dead on. Notice how the whole Jeter/A-Rod thing isn't even brought up any more since the two of them are having great seasons. Watch Wally ride the old, tired horse if one of them goes into an extended slump

As far as what A-Rod has done for the Yankees, hmmm: 30 home runs, 86 RBI,.317 Avg, 79 runs scored at the break. Most guys would be very happy with those numbers for the season. Yeah, let's dump him and see if we can get Aaron Boone back. Then we'll have plenty of cash to throw at Randy Johnson, Carl Pavano, Jeff Weaver, etc.

Frontal Lobe access please, doesn't A-Rod always have great send off money years? Nobody seems to win with him, they do seem to do well the following years A-Ter he leaves. He's the wrong kind of money player, like you said, use the money to pay off the national debt. or to buy a pitching staff. There are three things that go into a world series teams, hitting, pitching, and most important, chemistry, you can buy hitting and half the pitching, but chemistry is the intangible you can't buy. Look back at the Yank's four championship teams, it seemed that chemistry was inverse to the big buck mercenary hitters they brought in towards the end of thier run...

Newsday should instill some form of IQ test so we are not subject to people that are mentally challenged like Timmmmyyyyy. Or at least give them an alternate forum to post amongst themselves. Maybe he's not that dumb though, I suppose given he limited intellect it's possible that he can't afford a television or radio and that would explain why he hasn't watched any Yankee games the past ten years.

I have thought for a long time that A-Rod would end up with the Angels. But I wont believe it until I see it. I doubt that he stays with the Yankees. He doesn't need them or their money. As long as he keeps up the pace he has kept the first half of the season, he will have nothing left to prove to the Yankees. Not to mention that the Yankees' run is about over. They need a major overhall. They are pretty old.
