…. A-Rod?

Everyone seems to think that A-Rod isn’t worth the kind of money he’s gonna make, and that the Giants have no chance to get him. Huh.

I’m surprised. First, I think $30 million a year is not what it used to be. Juan Pierre got $10 million per. A-Rod is absolutely three times the player Pierre is, and Pierre’s not alone in making that kind of money. If the list of players making $15 or more contains some of these bums, I don’t see how you can conclude that A-Rod wouldn’t be worth $30.

As for whether he can become a Giant, well, the team payroll has to go down as we jettison some of the dead weight we’re carrying now, and I don’t think the amount A-Rod and Zito would earn would be that burdensome. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think it’s a good deal.
