This is an idea I have...Something new, from an angry, bitter, hurt sports fan. I hate when my team signs a guy to a contract far too extravagant and get burned. I hate it even more, when my team is held hostage by a player for a new contract due to poor ownership.
I am tired of seeing Alex Rodriguez in a Yankee uniform. His skills are declining at a pace where his skills will soon reach the low levels that match his personality. If you are a Yankee fan who does not want to see the Yankees pay almost $30 million dollars for the next five years to a man whos skills will continue to decline...PLEDGE!
If we can match A-Rod's remaining salary, we can offer the Yankees the option of buying out A-Rod, while we donate the same amount to a charity in the Yankees name. This helps us rid ourselves of A-Rod, and helps the Yankees eliminate an aging and declining player, while also helping the Yankees stay under the Luxary Tax. Most importantly, it will donate almost $160 million dollars to charities throughout the country!
