Many of you have already heard about this piece in New York Magazine which speculates that A-Rod could be leaving the Yanks after this season for the Chicago Cubs with the possibility of becoming part owner of the club.
For so many reasons, we should take this story with a grain of salt. Pete Abraham has a pretty good rebuttal here.
It is certainly possible that A-Rod will opt out of his contract and skip town after this season. However, this behind-the-scenes stuff with the Cubs right now has got to be completely bogus because of MLB's very strict tampering rules.
Like it or not, this is a story. Unfortunately, we are going to hear a lot of this kind of speculation until A-Rod makes his decision in November.
