If Alex Rodriguez Does Get Lifetime Ban, Rangers Still Have To Pay Him $40 Million
This has to be the definition of ‘stay winning’.
If in the event Alex Rodriguez is banned for life by Major League Baseball, he will not leave the game a poor man. The Rangers still owe him $40 million dollars, plus interest…ban or no ban, via CBS Sports:
The club still owes the three-time Most Valuable Player approximately $40 million in deferred moneyfrom the initial contract that A-Rod signed in 2000, according to the newspaper. That figure will eventually grow to almost $50 million.
The Rangers will pay the 38-year-old from 2016-2025, according to the Dallas Morning News.
While the Yankees can rejoice in saving $100 million, the Rangers are still going to be ruing the day they made that astronomic $252 million bid. Sad day indeed.
No wonder Arod is kicking his feet up at starbucks….
