Piniella To Go Hard After A-Rod

New, comments

That is what friends of Lou's are saying. He intends to land the third basemen in Chicago.

And A-Rod's relationship with Piniella potentially takes care of the no-trade clause waiver.

Rodriguez has a no-trade clause and could veto any proposed deal. But the idea of playing for Piniella, in the slightly less-pressurized Chicago market, and for a franchise that loves star power could appeal to Rodriguez. So could a chance for a fresh start after a .290-35-121 regular season that wasn't good enough for Yankees fans.

Let the games begin.
