If everything was in good faith, they signed the contract with him in good faith and as far as baseball and competition is concerned, that tax better stay with them.
Idiots? I think not. They were smart enough to insure the contract. I would not be the least bit surprised if it contains clauses that give them an out if Arod gets busted again. The tax won't stay with them. Why should they be taxed on money they don't pay? What world do you live in?
