This latest ARoid news has me worried.

ARoid's "nutritional and training" adviser is being investigated as part of a big crack down on south FL health clubs and clinics by MLB and DEA. ARoid is Manny's mentor and they often train together. :eek: God I wish they could send him out to CA to work out with Brady....Oh, wait. :eek:

It's the culture of baseball now. Clemen's will be an advisor with the Houston Astros. If their pitching staff has an amazing turn around, then they should all be tested ASAP! Guilt by association. Please DD, keep Manny as far away from that tool Arod as possible. And that has nothing to do with PED's. Just don't want Arod and his douchebag personality rubbing off on Manny. Look to Adam and Matt Manny...look to Adam and Matt.

It's OK. Remember, ARod swore that he stopped taking PEDs in 2003. :rolleyes:

Well there is good news in all of this. It appears that A-Roid will likely miss the entire 2013 season from what I'm hearing. It doesn't hurt A-Roid because he'll get paid more money in 2013 than probably everyone on this forum combined and he won't even have to lift a finger. It will hurt the Yankees though because they'll be paying him $114+ million for the next five years. That contract is so toxic that it is beyond comprehension.

Apparently the Yankees have very good insurance on Aroid's contract. They are actually better off in terms of insurance payout if he misses the entire season.

I decided to look up your statement and found the following.

According to the source, who has worked on similar contracts, it is likely that New York could recoup at least 75 percent, and perhaps as much as 100 percent, of the money it would still have to pay Rodriguez.

However, Rodriguez would have to be disabled for at least a full season before the team could begin to collect on the policy it has with Team Scotti, a Pittsburgh-based insurance firm that provides insurance to Major League Baseball teams. It is unclear whether the contract, which runs through the 2017 season, is insured for its entire length.

Really surprised that they got between 75-100% coverage for a player his age with a 10 year deal. (assuming the source is correct)

I'm sure it's an expensive insurance policy with that kind of coverage. Would be fun to know how much the policy cost.

It may not be for the entire length. There's also these parts.

and

But in a recent article published in Insurance Journal, an industry publication, Scotti was quoted as saying insurance companies have put a five-year limit on policies covering "most professional athletes." Whether A-Rod falls into that category is unknown, as is how much the Yankees had to pay to insure what was the most lucrative contract in the history of professional sports

Yeah-I would love to know this too.

On a side note, Aroid makes me sick. I hope he never plays again. The way he treated his wife and kids during that whole Madonna ordeal made me sick, the guy is a clubhouse cancer. I hope he does play, he brings the whole team down.

Him being out frees up the DH spot for Jeter and other older stars. It would be better if ARoid was barely healthy.

Nothing would be better for the universe than a series of 6-8 ARod comeback tours that look a lot like the 2012 Brian Roberts attempt, just longer and more painful. I'd love to see the tail end of his career as a bunch of 45-game blocks at a .550 OPS, followed by spring announcements that he's rested and ready to go for '14... and '15... and '16...

I assume that even if they get the insurance, the salary still counts against the cap and therefore still handicapps the Yanks as to what they can do salary wise? The real worry to me is if he retires and the Yanks get freed of the contract.
