Anyone hoping that the New York Yankees would trade Alex Rodriguez this offseason can forget about that happening. It is no longer even a possibility. We more or less can now conclude that there is virtually no chance whatsoever that the Yankees trade Rodriguez, especially considering the Miami Marlins were the only team who may have been willing to acquire him. But given the Marlins latest and more shameful fire sale, it all but guarantees that Rodriguez will be playing for the Yankees in 2013 and beyond.
I am sorry to be the one to break the bad news to Yankees Universe. I am sure that many of you were hoping New York would finally rid themselves of Rodriguez and his massive ego.
And his massive contract as well.
It just isn’t going to happen.
