“No call? But I gave her my number” Alex Rodriguez may be the highest paid player in the league, but not one GM has made a call to the Yankees asking about his availability. According to USA Today, not one has called the Yankees wanting A-Rod’s services. Sure, we know that Rodriguez will no longer slug 40 home runs, drive in 130 RBIs or be a center piece to any contending team, but this goes to show how little his value is around the league. The Yankees were expected to eat most of his 5-year, $114 million on his current contract to make a trade work, but even that couldn’t entice a team to try and make a move for him. A-Rod struggled in the postseason, batting .120 in 25 at bats. He was also pinch hit for late in games due to his in futility. The Yankees refused to lose out on a player of his caliber, and they overpaid for him considerably. Rather than letting the market dictate his value, Brian Cashman wanted to lock him up as soon as he could. The Yankees did the same with C.C. Sabathia. C.C. proved this year to be his dominant self, but we’ll have to wait and see if he pans out in the long run. The post Phones aren’t ringing for A-Rod’s services appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
