    Re: "Source:" A-Rod to Miami maybe?

    Cashman won't trade him. Not only because of his contract, but also his production.

    2013 FA: 3B
    Miguel Cairo (39)
    Eric Chavez (35)
    Mark DeRosa (38)
    Alberto Gonzalez (30)
    Brandon Inge (36)
    Maicer Izturis (32)
    Jose Lopez (29)
    Placido Polanco (37) - $5.5MM mutual option with a $1MM buyout
    Scott Rolen (38)
    Drew Sutton (30)
    Ty Wigginton (35) - $4MM club option with a $500K buyout
    David Wright (30) - $16MM club option with a $1MM buyout
    Kevin Youkilis (34) - $13MM club option with a $1MM buyout

    2013 FA: DH
    Bobby Abreu (39)
    Johnny Damon (39)
    Travis Hafner (36) - $13MM club option with a $2.75MM buyout
    Raul Ibanez (41)
    Hideki Matsui (39)
    David Ortiz (38)
    Luke Scott (35) - $6MM club option with a $1MM buyout
    Jim Thome (42)
    Delmon Young (27)

    Forget Wright. He's not coming.

    "I think there will certainly be interest," said Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson to Arizona Sport 620's Burns & Gambo when asked if the team has trade interest in Alex Rodriguez. The D'Backs are said to be seeking a third baseman, and GMs Kevin Towers and Brian Cashman worked together in the Yankees' front office in 2010.

    I'll believe it when a GM says it, not a manager. And, of course, it's not really about "interest" -- which I am sure there is -- but in a willingness to eat a significant amount of that contract.

    Re: "Source:" A-Rod to Miami maybe?

    why would a-rod waive his NTC to go to the desert?

    Homer friendly park, laid back fan base, talented roster, dry heat... There are places that make less sense.

    Arod loves the single life in NYC, though. We'll see what happens. I'm not sure there would be good value for him either. It's no secret that he is slipping. He's got his contract, so he has nothing to prove in order to get paid.

    Not so sure A-Rod will enjoy single life in NY too much if he rejects a viable trade and then under performs and continues to slip....got to imagine NYers will make his life a living hell at the ballpark AND in town.

    A-Rod's gonna collect his $$ wherever he plays..so why not play somewhere where he'd be welcome and where the team that he plays for can always say there only paying A-Rod current market rates (assuming the NYY eat a significant portion of the contract)?

    You don't even have to be a millionaire to get tons of tail in NYC (a few hundred Ks will do).

    I don't think he is going anywhere, but I do think we will hear a lot of speculation from now til spring training.

    Maybe the MLB Network will come up with a 30 minute daily program called "All Things A-Rod".

    Re: "Source:" A-Rod to Miami maybe?

    I seriously think right now that A-rod won't be traded. Grandy however, I actually think this offseason he will be traded. I am holding off Getting a Nova jersey just in case. I really don't want to see him gone but I got a bad feeling he will be. I think the kid has some real talent but I can honestly see him being traded maybe even along with Grandy to maybe get more prospects out of the deal or for a Young MLB pitcher with a good upside.
    Still and will always be a New England Patriots fan.

    The Diamondbacks might as well have said:

    I don't think he's going anywhere either, but as you said, when it comes to A-Rod, the media will being trying to dig up any thing they can. Without him, they've got no job.

    A-Rod cares about his legacy far too much for this to be a concern.

    Re: "Source:" A-Rod to Miami maybe?

    I don't see any circumstance where A-Rod would waive his NTC to go to a NL team.

    He needs to remain in the AL, where the DH slot will allow him to remain in the lineup on a regular basis, and attain his HR milestone bonuses.

    a-rod put up a 112 this year, a 119 before that, and a 123 before that. yeah, he's not been a $30 mil player, but he's not done.
    But Jeter isn't a power bat. I truly hope that I am wrong, but I think this is ARod for the rest of his career. At best.

    I'll disagree here.
    While he won't power his way to OPS+'s of 170 anymore, he can still be pretty productive at 135 or so.
    I think A-Rod, from here, learns to stay healthy and on the field and goes on to have productive seasons.

    If he stays, I hope that you are correct, sir. If not, I hope you are wrong

    Does he have it in him to be a high OBP guy, even if his power numbers suffer, though? I'm not sure.

    A reporter on twitter suggests A-rod, Nunez and Nova to Miami for buherle and Reyes.
