Olney: Yanks likely to cut A-Rod?

By ESPNNewYork.com staff

In today's Insider column, Buster Olney writes:

The Yankees owe Alex Rodriguez $86 million over the next four seasons, a financial commitment that may be lightened if an arbitrator rules against him and sustains some sort of suspension, and if that ruling stands up to any inevitable legal challenge that Rodriguez may mount.

I don’t think it matters. I'm guessing -- and that's all it is, a guess -- that Rodriguez has played his last game for the Yankees.

If Rodriguez is ordered to serve the full 211 games in his suspension, I think they'll cut him upon completion of his sentence. If his suspension is reduced, I think they'll cut him. If he wins his case outright, I think they'll cut him.


Should the Yankees cut A-Rod no matter what? Vote in the poll at right and/or tell us what you think in the comments section.
