I don’t know about you, but I’m about ready to put this thing to bed. Alex Rodriguez’s record ten year, $275MM deal is almost done according to the AP. It sounds like they have an agreement but it needs to be put on paper. A couple of Goldman Sachs managing directors helped make the deal possible while Scott Boras sat on the sidelines. The contract discussions have been going on for roughly ten days covertly.
Part of the deal is that Alex will share in the revenue if he nears Barry Bonds’ career home run record. That’ll need to be approved by the commissioner’s office.
