Boston Wins The World Series...But In BIGGER Baseball News, Alex Rodriguez Opts Out

I love this. Not content with not being in the post season spotlight, the Yankees are stealing the post season spotlight again. Alex Rodriguez has opted out of his $252 million, 10-year Yankees contract!!

Upon hearing the news, Steinbrenner -- now the figurehead of the Yankees' baseball operations -- sent a scathing message Rodriguez's way. "It's clear he didn't want to be a Yankee, he doesn't understand the privilege of being a Yankee on a team where the owners are willing to pay $200 million to put a winning product on the field.

The golden question is which team will be able ... other than the Yankees ... to pay Rodriguez the $30 million a year that Boras and Rodriguez are demanding? Ironically, the team that could is the Boston Red Sox. Too bad for Alex though, the Sox just proved they don't really need him. (Sweeping the World Series and what not .. no biggie.) Alex- so classy, not trashy.
