    Yankees say A-Rod's final game is Friday, then be released as player and join front office as special advisor and instructor.

    Do you think Judge could take his roster spot?

    Crossing my fingers. If he's really on in as an instructor he could be awesome help for a lot of good young talent
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Such an awesome deal for ARod.

    He gets to do virtually nothing, and still makes all of his cash.

    Good for him.


    It's been a pleasure watching him play ball.

    This is just a nice way of saying you are fired but we need you to actually do something next year for all that money we owe you.

    Why do the Yankees still need to pay him if he quit? I thought the remainder of contracts were null and void if the player decides to retire before it expires.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    He's technically not retiring.

    Is it because the Yankees would rather keep paying him the money specifically not to play because he's just that terrible?

    The Yankees want to just release (fire) him and that means they would still have to pay him. They are spinning it in the media that he is retiring and they are just going to pay him the last year of his salary to be a special advisor when in reality they are just telling him we are not going to play you anymore

    Their team is better if he doesn't play (he's what, -1 WAR or something terrible like that?). The open roster spot to them in 2017 is worth paying Arod the money now, because they are going to have to pay it regardless. I think by doing it this way they actually save on luxury tax for 2017 which is huge.

    It still counts toward the luxury tax.

    I'm surprised the Yankees and AROD didnt just agree to give him AB's until he got his 700th homer and he would do this "retirement" thing after the game he got his 700th.

    The way he's hitting, it would be next season that he would get 700.
