Report: A-Rod could play for, own Cubs

Game 155: We play today, we win today, das it
Should we trust Will Leitch's 'sources'? And other sundry questions about The A-Rod Article

ESPN reports on a story in New York Magazine that says A-Rod could wind up owning and playing for the Cubs. I don’t see that happening at all, as the article states. I’ll have more on this story later tonight.

Update: Since I’m now home and off of my Blackberry, here’s a link to the non-mobile version of this article. Scott Boras is already denying it.

    yeah, that ESPN report pretty much blows that story up as 100% bogus. No way would Bud allow that, and its 100% tampering. This stuff is ridiculous, and Boras is just trying to drive the price up for the Yanks

      What in the hell would Bud Selig do? Man’s a complete tool.

  • mg

    Yeah, that’s bs. I can’t imagine that the players union or MLB would allow that.

    • dan

      be careful: that would mean that the union and MLB actually agree on something

    Tampering. Clearly false.

    What would the Yankees get as compensation?

    Will Leitch is getting some serious press from this article… that he basically fabricated that idiot. I love the line about how the Yankee team making fun of his ‘tic’ of him rotating his arm isn’t a “good sign” but rather the team disrespecting him.

    Wake up Will. You’re better than that.
