Vote: Will A-Rod opt out of his contract?

 Alfonso Soriano
Alex Rodriguez batted .071 in the 2006 ALDS.
Alex Rodriguez' tenure in New York has been a study in contradictions.

He's put up MVP-caliber numbers every season, but has failed notably in the clutch. He moved to third base to accomodate hometown hero Derek Jeter, but is perceived as selfish and withdrawn. He's a young, handsome, intelligent, surefire Hall-of-Famer who sees a therapist to deal with a lack of confidence. Does this sound like an ideal way to go about one's career?

With all this going against him, is it any surprise that he might opt out of his contract and seek his fortune elsewhere? Should he move to a place where he'll be under less pressure, or in a less-demanding defensive position? Will he someday win a World Series? It's a sticky situation, SportsNation. What do you make of it?
