Breaking News: A-Rod says Good-Bye

Alex Rodrigues notified Sports Ilustrated that he will opt out of his contract. Scott Boras sent word of the opt-out in writing and left phone and text messages for general manager Brian Cashman on Sunday, according to a report published on the A-Rod led the Major Leagues with 54 home runs, 156 RBIs and 143 runs scored this season. He also batted .314.

I would absolutely love to see A-Rod in Flushing next season. He would solidify our lineup tremendously and would attract truckloads of money for Mr. Wilpon. David Wright has said that he would'nt mind changing positions to accomodate the potential AL MVP. Heres my plan. Sign A-Rod to as much money that he wants, move David Wright to second base and you have a line-up of:
  • SS Jose Reyes
  • RF Lastings Milledge
  • 2B David Wright
  • 3B Alex Rodriguez
  • CF Carlos Beltran
  • RF Moises Alou
  • 1B Carlos Delgado
  • C Paul Lo Duca
  • Pitchers Spot
If you dont get butterflies by reading that lineup, you are not a real Mets fan. Some people might argue that the Mets should not try to be the yankees, but signing Mr. Rodriguez would give us the leverage to get to the next level. Just add one or two bullpen arms this off-season and we will be poised to make a Championship Run in 08!
What do you think?
