Trying to figure out if Stanton's injury makes this more or less likely. Are they interested because they figure they're out of it and 700 home runs might sell some tickets (more likely now), or is it that they were thinking he might have made a difference in a close wild-card finish (less likely)?

Might put some butts in the seats. Might prove to be a useful bench bat. And the price is right.

i can't imagine it'll put enough butts in seats to make up for the cost unless he agrees to the minimum

I thought the Yankees were stuck paying him?

Looks like it might not be happening now anyways.

If the Yanks do cut A-Rod, how long till the Marlins sign him at league minimum?

You just had to know if any club would want A-Rod, it would be the Fish.

Word is that he rejected an offer to sign with the Marlins and doesn't want to play anywhere for the rest of 2016. We'll see.

I don't understand his contract situation. He can sit out and get paid by the Yankees this year and next, but if he were to sign with another team (e.g. the Marlins), then he forfeits that money?

I assumed that any team would have to pick up his contract, but the espn article says A-Rod is "technically a free agent" which says to me that he can sign with who he wants and for how much he wants.

So the "special advisor" thing with the Yankees is just smoke so everybody saves face?

After the loss of his original rider, Arod was given to Legolas by Éomer Éadig, in compensation for the supposed deaths of Merry and Pippin. Legolas ordered for his saddle and rein to be taken off, and rode him bareback with ease.[1]
