So here's a simple solution to A-Rod's dilemma. Instead of causing a ruckus and eliminating all the seemingly goodwill he has created with the Yankees since his return this spring, he should offer to donate the money to a worthy charity and collect the tax write-off. He doesn't really need the money, anyway. And this way, if the Yankees refuse to pay him, they would primarily only be hurting a charity-- not a good public relations' move for a multi-billion dollar organization.
Now getting back to A-Rod hitting like A-Rod again. What he is doing is pretty incredible. On Friday in Tampa, he hit the longest home run by a Yankee in the last ten years (including the A-Roid version of himself), a ball that carried nearly 480 feet. He then crushed another home run well over 400 feet--an absolute laser down the left field line.
Could he....? Would he...?
Even for A-Rod, it would seem hard to fathom.
