Alex Rodriguez, in an interview with Bob Costas from way back in September, talked about retiring after the 2010 season when his current contract is up. He backpedaled a little bit, but his words are causing a stir. Kind of like a delayed steal since he said it in September. Does this mean A-Rod is less likely to opt out after 2007 to try to get more security?
Bill James gives Rodriguez a 31% chance to reach 756 home runs and a 5% chance to reach 4,000 hits.
