"A" big deal has been made to bring Alex Rodriguez to the New York Yankees in exchange for Alfonso Soriano. The deal is awaiting Bud Seligs approval.

This would bring even more attention to A-Rod if he continues to do well.

From the New York Times...

"...The deal includes more cash — $67 million from the Rangers to the Yankees — than any previous baseball trade. The most staggering part of the deal is not what the Yankees are paying Rodriguez, but what they are not.

Rodriguez is working under the richest contract in sports, a 10-year, $252 million deal he signed with the Texas Rangers after the 2000 season. The Rangers are receiving significant financial relief by trading him, but because they are paying so much of the $179 million Rodriguez is owed, he is something of a bargain for the Yankees.

Before deferrals, the Yankees will pay Rodriguez $15 million in each of the next three seasons; $16 million in 2007 and 2008; $17 million in 2009; and $18 million in 2010. Rodriguez will defer $1 million in each of the first four years of the deal, at zero-percent interest, and receive the $4 million in 2011, after the contract expires.

The Yankees had to add value to the contract for the union to approve it, and they did so in two ways: They guaranteed Rodriguez a suite on the road, a perk the Yankees almost never allow, and gave Rodriguez permission to link his Web site to the Yankees' team site."

It's as if Red Sox fans have been injected with a massive dose of Botulism Toxin, the drug, otherwise known as Botox™, which is used to stun part of the body into numbness and submission. Bosox fans are still feeling the pain of seeing their hapless, but still beloved team squander a four-run lead in the game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.

"I feel violated, upset," said Chrissy Brown, 33, a surgical technician from Newton, Mass."
