Just When You Thought…

NY Daily News

I have to admit, I thought he was gone.   I was starting to get comfortable with the idea of a Yankees Future without the future Home Run King.

But all that has changed in the past two days, hasn’t it?  Now, instead of thinking about how Cashman and the Junior Brents could get their hands on the next Scott Brosius, we have to prepare for the “World of A-Rod” – and all that it brings to the table, good and bad – for the next ten years.

Ten years.  This is a monumental shift for the psyches and thought-processes of the faithful Yankees fans around the globe.

Sit back.  Try to relax.  Let this one digest.

In the end, this is the best thing that could’ve happened to the Yankees this offseason, whether you believe A-Rod came back to the Yankees without Boras because he wanted to remain a Yankee, or you think he came back without Boras because Boras couldn’t get him the new mega-deal that he had promised.

Either way, the Yankees will not lose one top prospect to fill the third-base hole, and in turn, they have retained the most talented player in baseball for the next decade, a time-frame when he is sure to be chasing every major record in the books.

As for the elusive postseason glory that has been dodging the Yankees and A-Rod since his arrival, we all have the next ten years to watch and see.  If nothing else, this “The Pursuit of Happiness” will be as exciting and eventful as only Alex Rodriguez knows how to be.

Cross your fingers New York.  This thing could go either way.  I for one believe A-Rod’s day will come, and now we all know it will come in pinstripes.



  1. Long time no chat! 🙂 Well, I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to see what’s going to be the final say of this ARod drama. When he opted out, even though I know 99% of Yankee fans were angry, I was just disappointed. I really believed he wanted to be a Yankee through and through. And now….looks like he’s figured some things out. I think him going back to the Yankees WITHOUT Boras has to be humbling for him. But we’ll see…

  2. all you cox lovers have to be sick of alex the great ever since the 6th inning of game 4 (which i think the cox won) all the world has been hearing about is arod. and now this! maybe one year the cox will win it for ya at fenway. its really alot of fun when your team wins at home it happens often in the bronx.go cox!! ha! ha!

  3. Very nice blog entry. I know you try, but you should write more often. Thanks for checking in!

  4. I work with Yankee Joe and you should have seen how giddy he was that Arod opted out and he was going to be “someone else’s headache”, but like every other Yankee fan he is trying to put a positive spin on the fact that they got played by Boras and Arod. $275 million for a guy who never received a contract offer from another team…..and maybe he will break every “regular season” record but we can all be sure that he will not be breaking any post season records.

    “Sit back. Try to relax. Let this one digest.” WE JUST PAID $275 million for someone who has never hit in the clutch….FEEL BETTER


  5. Bryan B above is a Mets fan. Have pity on him.

  6. bryan b u should be pumped up the mets got yorvit torrealba!

  7. Love his catching hate his bat

  8. Bryan B: I do believe sully was being mega-sarcastic. And I also believe you’re very bitter about losing Posada.

  9. Have fun watching arod chase records…cuz that’s bout all the spanks will be doing in the next ten years. How many millions is he getting?
    I can see the steam out of Steinbrenner already…”what, no championship…again” hahahhahaa

    If you search my posts from earlier in this ’07 season, you’ll see the best team I predicted would win…RED SOX WIN WORLD SERIES..AGAIN.
    Happy Thanksgiving spanks/arod fans.
    And as usual……




    Required reading for you Yank fans:




    Oh and congrats on the A-Rod MVP! I’m sure it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I even send you advanced kudos when he becomes the new home run king in about 8 years…

    …but don’t get me wrong. I’ll take our DIRT DOG WORLD SERIES MVP third baseman any day of the week over that ringless, pansie prima-donna of yours!

    “There’s definitely a huge hole in the resume. And I mean, it’s my third MVP and I’m here to say that I would trade all three for one world championship. I wouldn’t think twice about it…”

    -Alex Rodriguez

    Sure, dude, whatever!

    GO SOX

  11. smitty isnt there some kind of “wicked cool” cox website u can go to,our are u like the rest of the world fasinated by everything alex the great does?

  12. Stumbled upon your blog a week ago and decided to come back. Not for the articles you write, but for how you write them, really amazing stuff you’re doing here, i like how you put information into the articles which makes it much more easier to read and much more interesting of course. Keep up the good work!

  13. It’s been some time since my last visit, but I’ve been keeping up with our Yanks and I’m so glad your site is still up. As usual, you’re great at keeping everyone informed and keeping the articles peppered with realism, and more importantly, optimism.

    I’ve read some of the things posted here as of late. It’s really a shame that there are no sites where Yankee fans can chat without sox fans causing strife. Very sigh worthy.

    But anyway, we have “Alex the Great” back (great name btw!) and we’ll see what the future holds. The Yankees may have fallen off in the playoffs for the past few years, but I’ll still take 26 or 7 any day. 🙂

    Keep up the great work and I’ll be here when our season starts!
