Call him a jerkoff all you want. If there’s one thing that’s becoming apparent with the wallet of ARod, it’s that the dude doesn’t plan on going broke anytime soon. What’s he been up to this offseason, besides pumping iron with WWE Diva Torrie Wilson? Oh, just flipping his NYC Riverside Drive penthouse for a healthy profit. Numbers weren’t disclosed (until tax records are filed) but figure he didn’t take less than $7.5mm This guy is going to be wiping his ass with $100 bills for years!
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Six days after the Yankees were eliminated in the divisional playoffs by the Tigers in the Bronx in October, he quietly put it back on the market with an $8 million asking price.
Last week, Mr. Rodriguez signed a contract to sell the 3,600-square-foot four-bedroom apartment, according to listing records.
Several brokers familiar with the sale said the contract price was high enough for the Yankee star to lock in a significant profit.
This condo is at some place called The Rushmore. Rich people are fighting each other to get condos at this place. ARod had the best place in the house.
• 5 bed, 5 bath
• Marble bathroom
• 3,585 sq. ft.
• Billiards room
• Master has two baths
• Lots of windows
• That infamous ‘open floor plan’

Jorge Posada played 17 seasons in the same pinstripes that Thurman Munson sported for 11 years. But the link between the two former Yankees catchers goes well beyond the uniforms that they donned. Munson's wife, Diana, shed some light on the link during Posada's retirement news conference on Tuesday. She credits Posada as the person who brought baseball back into her life...
The Yankees designated Kevin Whelan for assignment to create 40-man roster space for Hiroki Kuroda, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com tweets.
What Jorge Posada did was special. Still, players who aren't fortunate enough to spend their entire careers with the same organization can, and often do, end up indelibly linked to just one franchise.
Longtime Yankees catcher Jorge Posada, who spent his entire 17-year Major League career in pinstripes, announced his retirement during a Tuesday morning news conference at Yankee Stadium.
