Honestly, this whole thing really makes Cashman look like a dick.

/We already knew A-Rod was a dick, so this doesn't really change my impression of him.

just curious, if a-rod stays injured, is it possible that an insurance company is paying some of a-rods salary for the yankees?  do they have any incentive to keep him on the disabled list?

It depends on the insurance policy.  Generally, they don't pay the entire salary and generally they want their own doctors to examine a player before paying out.

The insurance plan will cover his salary but only if he's out for a whole season or longer, supposedly

So he stands to gain the $ of playing an extra 100 games if he can manage to retire before he gets suspended.

up to 80% covered if he's injured for the year or retires. If he's suspended by baseball, no one has to pay out his salary at all

Being his age with the injuries and getting off the juice the fall was going to be hard and fast.

Perhaps ARod would be interested in a game of chess.

agreed.  at our local minor league baseball game last night, we were debating whether or not he'll ever play another game.

I say no. The guy is pure poison at this point. Players, management and fans alike consider him an arrogant, overpaid prima donna, which is exACTly what he is.

Just end it already. Enough is enough.

"Alex, if you take back what you said about being ready to play and we collect 80% of your salary from the insurance company, we'll kick 20% of that right back to you.  Everybody wins." -Cashman

A-Rod is not a baseball player, he's a businessman and he came to the league to make business, so far he seems to have made more business than anyone else.

That's why he roided, he wanted big bucks, once he got them, he laid off, then he doubled down and got even more big bucks, so he roided again one last time, then once everything was secure for even years after his player life would end, he let the dope off and took the freight train to the face. He doesn't care, he got paid.

Yankee fan and Alex fan here, but that's the truth.
