"I want to put all this talk to rest about Alex playing for any team this season. It's not happening," - Ron Berkowitz; Alex Rodriguez' publicist
There is nothing that made me happier than hearing A-Rod will not be playing for any other teams this season. Lets be fucking real, this man does not have it in him anymore to play at a professional level. As soon as i heard the rumor that the Miami Marlins were linked to signing him I thought immediately to Brett Favre, and how I did not want Alex to become the old geezer who couldn't call it quits. Rodriguez is nothing sort of a savage for his age, but lets say he even went to the Marlins, that means there is no DH and he would have to play a position. YEAH OKAY. I could possibly see him getting some time at first but his bat has not even been good enough to give him that sort of role on a team full of youngsters. Goes to show how much he has matured over the years because i could see him pulling some bullshit if he had some gas left in the tank. A-Rod would only be joining a team too reach the small circle of people who have reached 700 homeruns, and to give a big fuck you the Yankees organization. Although, the man proved a lot of us wrong and will not be playing which shows the respect he has for the Yankees. Thank you for not being a douche bag for once A-Rod, now go advise those future Yankees on how to become legendary.
