Jon Heyman, Dan Graziano, and Ed Price are reporting it: Alex Rodriguez is nearing a ten-year, $280MM contract with the Yankees. Heyman says the deal would have tons of incentives, allowing it to go "well over $300 million."
And of course, Scott Boras is deeply involved in the negotiations. Covert talks have been going on for days, apparently. Perhaps A-Rod won’t be seen as such a villain now. $28MM would be a pretty fair deal for him, maybe even a bargain.
