60 Minutes A-Rod Story

Anyone catch the A-Rod story on 60 Minutes?

Steroids dealer Tony Bosch claims that A-Rod's "associates" initially tried to bribe him to leave the country and then texted his ex-girlfriend threatening to kill Bosch if he snitched.

Bud Selig and MLB COO Rob Manfred also were interviewed in the report and went after A-Rod claiming he is a liar, a fraud and committed an unprecedented attempt to hide his actions.

Very interesting.

Bosch did everything but jizz himself in that interview. He and Bonds are birds of a feather.

One of the guys who works for me is a huge Yankees fan and he was saying that A-Rod CAN play for an independent league club during his suspension. Now wouldn't THAT be a hoot? I think he should do it...

My grandfather said that after Joe Jackson was banned he saw him playing in the minors under a different name. He had lost a step, but his swing was unforgettable.

With his bum hip, other various injuries, and off the juice, he's a prime candidate for being injury prone and declining numbers at the plate. He's already a bit of a liability in the field, and I hope no club even gives him a whiff of interest, so he can fall off the face of the Earth.
Even after a full year suspension, A-Rod will have 3-years and $61 million left on his guaranteed contract with the Yankees.

That isn't all that important. What IS important is that the Yankees aren't over the salary cap this year. That resets the clock on number of consecutive seasons over the cap and saves them a shitload going forward.

It is important in the context of the quoted statement, which involves the idea of A-Rod looking for a job after his suspension is over.

And it's still no guarantee that the Yankees will be under the threshold.

The Yankees are far from a complete team, right now. They are reportedly one of the finalists for Tanaka, which will cost them close to $20 million and guarantee that they go over the luxury tax.

The NY Post currently has them at $153.5 million with only 14 players contributing to that number and notes that they have to add roughly $16 million for insurance/pensions and in-season minor-leage call ups. That number also doesn't count arbitration eligible players like Gardner, Nunez, Robertson and Nova (about $6.5 million at minimum - MLBTR has it projected at over $12 million). That puts the Yankees at roughly $176 million with more holes to fill.

$10 million is more than enough to sign 8 players but probably not enough to make them a contender. $4.5 million means that the Yankees are toast and are better off signing Tanaka and forgetting the cap. That's also only taking the 25-man roster into account and not the 40.

Knowledge is your friend. There is a soft cap with a luxury tax penalty above $189MM.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxury_tax_%28sports%29


Quote:
The threshold level for the luxury tax will be $189MM in 2014 (up from $178MM from 2011-2013) and will remain at $189MM through 2016. From 2012 through 2016, teams who exceed the threshold for the first time must pay 17.5% of the amount they are over, 30% for the second consecutive year over, 40% for the third consecutive year over, and 50% for four or more consecutive years over the cap.[3]
