MLBTradeRumors reads the six daily Alex Rodriguez articles so you don’t have to. He gave the standard lines in his WFAN interview yesterday: he wants to finish his career a Yankee, he wants to win another MVP and the World Series with them.
Rodriguez still said enough to fan the flames. He explained how five or six teams expressed interest in him this offseason, and attempted to put the onus on the fans and Yankee management. If they don’t make him feel wanted, then it seems he will exercise his out clause. I’d be shocked if the booing stops, so this is probably his last year with the Yankees.
According to Jon Heyman earlier this month, interested parties included the Angels, Dodgers, Cubs, Giants, Phillies, Diamondbacks, and Indians, with the White Sox and Dodgers the most persistent.
