    When Alex Rodriguez has played, the Yankees are 56-38, .596. Without him, they're 15-10, .600.

    While I'd love to get rid of his salary, because he's not worth it. He has been consistent with his bat. But, it's not like we could cut him and dump his salary. be nice though, with his salary alone we could get 3 really good players. Imagine also if we could get rid of tex's salalry also?

    dont forget Chavez and Nix are hitting the snot out of the ball. Alex is still a feared hitter around the league even if his power is gone. At some point ARod will be the full time DH
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    and i think he will become a better hitter with less injuries. no that this recent one would have mattered though.

    When Alex gets back, no rush, I like the fact if he's not firing on all cylinders we've got Chavez, Nix and Casey all breathing down his neck. Great competition for bringing out his best stuff.

    When a player makes $30M a year he's never really competing for his job. I can't fathom the situation in which A-Rod would be benched. If he's 0-for-40 to end the season, he will be in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS.

    Did you really say that Jayson Nix and Casey McGehee are breathing down A-Rod's neck?

    Well, at least a situation without Joe Torre in it.

    Let's nip this in the bud right now. The Yankees are not better off without Alex Rodriguez.

    For what reason would you do that? First, Alex makes the Yankees a much stronger team. What 3 players would you get who would make us a better team ( if you paid them a combined salary of $25 mil a yer), and you are nuts to think that with Tex's offensive and defensive contributions that he isn't earning his salary. He is a positive in the clubhouse. Would you prefer disruptive players like Manny? Who would you replace him with that would make us a better team?

    with 25 mill we could easily get two starting pitchers. or resign gandy and get a catcher. and while i said tex salary would be good to have back, I didn't say i would get rid of him. but i'm pretty sure we could find someone just as good as tex for cheaper.

    You know, a lot of sports is psychological. The team seems to have stepped it up hitting wise, perhaps to compensate for all the big guns that are missing, including ARod, Mariano, Tex,

    I would love to see him be the full time DH next year, just to avoid injuries. Think he still has something left in him; he's shown flashes of that this year.

    A-Rod has the 3rd highest OPS this season among AL 3B. This is a ridiculous thread.

    He's not. It's not even really debatable. He's not performing at the level they paid for.

    Actually, I do think it's debatable. The salary structure in baseball renders a large number of players as "overpaid", including Tex. While he may not be performing up to the standards that many of us fans would like to see, relative to baseball's current economy they probably are getting what they're paying for IMHO.

    Admittedly he's not hitting for average but in the three full seasons he's been with the Yankees (this will be the fourth, he has played in over 155 games each season, hit an average of 37 HR's/yr, had an average of 110 RBI's ans scored an average of 100 runs. There is no better fielding firstbasemAN IN THAN THE MAJORS THAN tEX. sURE $22.5 MILLION IS A LOT OF MONEY AND MAYBE HE IS SLIGHTLY OVERPAID BUT YOU COULDN'T GET HIS EQUICVALENT FOR LESS THAN SAY $18 MIL. i SAY HE'S WORTH IT
