Has anyone else noticed that he has started to become more involved with endorsements? From the Pepsi ads last year to the new Galyans advertisement for Nike Pro and Dry-Fit gear that I received in the mail today. I think that his agent would be a fool to move him from a market like Chicago that is lacking a true superstar in the marketing field. I wonder if by taking a little less salary from baseball, he could own this town with marketing and endorsements.

By the way, the Galyans ad is pretty cool.

That's unless the evil empire grabbed him. NY's not a bad market either. Let's keep out fingers crossed though.

Just as long as he doesn't do any deoderant commercials like Giambi. "One thing about a woman is that they don't smell like a man." That was so corny.

Not sure there will be enough advertising dollars for Roidambi, AROD, Jeter, etc. Speaking of the Yankees, how bad is Boone hurt for them to release him?

I'm pretty sure it's just a cost cutting move. The Yankees save around five million because he broke a clause in his contract by playing basketball which allowed the yankees to void his contract. He tore his ACL so he won't be playing until 2005. Somehow I picture the Yankees signing him to play 2b in 2005.

Yea, I think they only owe him $900K, which is still crazy. It would be so nice if I was unable to do my job and they paid $900K for my trouble.

Or he could have just lied and said that he tripped over his dog. He'd be getting all the of the contract $$$. Good to see an honest guy for once.

Or he could have said that he fell off of his truck while he was washing it.

Stat of the week:

2.4 million

Amount by which the Yankees payroll increased after they shed the salaries of Drew Henson and Aaron Boone (via buy outs) and traded Alfonso Soriano for Alex Rodriguez.

4.4 million

Value of tickets sold by the Yankees in the four days after they traded for Rodriguez.

As Steve Rosenbloom would say 'you have to spend money to make money...connect the dots Sox management.'

You can't stop here, Lip.

$179 million

Added salary by taking on A-Rod's gigantic contract.

While I'm certainly no JR apologist, if you're gonna tell the story, tell the WHOLE story.

SMO,

That is correct. Tell the whole store. You left off that the Rangers are picking up approx. $70mil of AROD's salary. True cost to the yanks: Approx. $10-12mil per year. A bargain when you think about it!

Sorry, should have been more specific. It is costing the the yanks $11.6M per season, considering Soriano's salary of $5.4Miil is gone.

It was a bargain, but Soriano is a hell of a player too. Not A-Rod, but not chump change either. However, you have to figure that Soriano will be making probably closer to $8 million next year.

Gene Ya, but he'll still be getting an increase in salary. I believe that $8 million prediction was made by someone on ESPN, when the trade actually went down.
