    Because Miguel Tejada doesn't have a shot at hammerin' Hanks record. A-Rod was suppose to be the player that vindacted the records from steroid users such as Bonds and Mark. Now he is on the same level.


    If Tiger Woods did steroids the whole comparision to him and Michael Jordan would fly out the window. If John Daly did steroids no boby would give a chit.

    Tejada should be held to the same standards, since both "cheated" or whatever. Personally, I dont give a crap about "vindicating" records and what not. Bonds, McGwire and Alex are all great players in my eyes...and nothing will ever change that.

    If A-Rod retires, he will walk about as the biggest phony in the history of sports. For all who think he is retiring is laughable.

    Bonds and McGwire will never be on the same level as Hank. If you believe otherwise, than I feel sorry for you.

    Agreed. He's been tested for the past 5 years and hasn't failed. He has no reason to retire.

    Then I am going tocontinue to support A-rod. And ignore all the media , and those stupid Yankee fans that boo him, etc.etc. . I would rather have a cheater on our team then ship this cheater somewhere else. This guy can hit 40 homeruns a year for us. And let's just be happy the other steroid taker Giambi is gone.
    Still and will always be a New England Patriots fan.

    Re: Poll: would you want A-Rod to retire?

    I know it is not our money but seriously think about it - 09:$32M, 10:$32M, 11:$31M, 12:$29M, 13:$28M, 14:$25M, 15:$21M, 16:$20M, 17:$20Mplus another $30M marketing agreement based on home run milestones.

    You don't think management wouldn't love to get out from under this albatross now?

    Same here. Exposing players that did it before the rule was put in place is nothing more than a witch hunt, it can do nothing good for anyone. it's for people who get off on pointing their holier-than-thou finger at someone so they can tell them how wrong they were.

    They just signed that albatross last year. It's their own fault... not A-Rod's or anyone else's.

    Would you prefer Clay Bellinger manning 3B? He's an uber world series champion.

    Re: Poll: would you want A-Rod to retire?

    Even if he did take them, the Yankees will make their millions on him and he will hit 40+ homeruns for about 4 more years and still be able to hit after that. He's one of the biggest, if not the biggest players in the game and when your the biggest everyone is gunning for you. I do think the 32 million could be spend better elsewhere, but A-Rod is A-Rod and its really nice to have him at times.

    I didn't say it was his fault. However, as a fan of the team I wish they didn't have this huge financial burden. Especially, for a player who only thinks of himself.

    Re: Poll: would you want A-Rod to retire?

    I voted "no" because he played in an era where we know that a minimum 15-20% were taking PED's, knowing that the percentage is greater, According to Chipper Jones, in an old WFAN interview, he suspects that 1/4 to 1/2 of the players have used, and that even he was tempted but would take out a picture of his family from his wallet as a deterrent. Honest and refreshing response from him.

    What is so funny about saving $25mm? About not having this huge distraction on the team?

    The day the Yanks announce they are out of money, I will admit you are right. Also, A-Rod is currently the best player in baseball.

    Of course the $25MM could be spent elsewhere.

    We're the distraction. Don't you see that? If every Yankee fan got over the bullcrap, none of this would matter.

    You will not get an equal replacement at 3B a week before spring training opens
