I was doing some research for the Top 20 Prospects list I plan on posting tomorrow when I came across this clause in A-Rod's contract
[Rodriguez] may opt out [of his contract] after 2007 unless he gets an $8M/year raise or $1M more than MLB’s highest-paid player
He's already slated to make $27M a year from 2007-2010, and he could up that to $35M a year (he'll still be the highest paid player by 2008)? That's ridiculous. I wonder if he really would opt out if the Yanks refused to give him the extra money...
Alex if you're out their reading this, I'm a broke college student who's less than 3 months away from graduating and making my second cross-country move in 2 years. I'm not asking for a handout, consider it a charity. I'll even put a link to your site
on my sidebar. (There, how could he say no to that!)
