Reason #216 - Nine-Figure Contracts
Here's my take on Alex Rodriguez's decision to opt out of the last three years of his $252 million contract: He thinks someone is going to pay him more. A retractable roof, which costs about $100 million, is much more reliable and trustworthy. And, in Cleveland, I'd rather put that money into a roof than pay C.C. Sabathia, who is probably going to ask for nine figures - maybe, a six-year deal at $17 million per year. C.C.-see ya'.
