1. They won't have to eat it all. Some team will take on some of it. Even if its 20-30%. He's still Arod and whatever team takes on some $$$ will make it back because he's still a draw and will sell merchandise.
2. At this point he's done with the Yankees. He can't come back next year now. You can't bench him like this and then bring him back. He's done in NY.
