    Looks like A-Rods staying too

    http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/NASAp...=.jsp&c_id=nyy

    cashman and torre are both backing him saying hell be back in 07
    and personally im happy about it
    his problems can be worked out, and maybe if jeter acted like a captain and stood up for his teammate, things would get a little better for him

    As mentioned elsewhere, that's GM talk.

    If they would announce they were trading him, you think they'd get good offers? Of course not. They say they aren't trading him to make the bidding competitive in order to get the best price for him. Only Terry Bradway would tip his hand this early.

    if you want to trade someone, do you destroy your leverage and say you want him out?

    Don't be sure Arod is coming back, as I said in another thread, to not talk like he is coming back would devalue him in a trade. If Cashman or Torre admit they want to trade him, they won't get as much.

    yeah after posting it i realized it could possibly just be a ploy to get better trade offers..oops
    even though it doesnt really sound like one
    if it was it would probably sound like yeah..we havent had a chance to discuss is well see blah blah blah
    this sounds more like standing behind him

    and plus the whole world knows that they were thinking about it and regardless of whether teams know they want to trade him or not were still talking about alex rodriguez

    I don't know if he'll be traded or not, but I do know that that statement means nothing.

    Good thing for you yankee fans Herm and Badway arent calling the shots...

    But on the real this is good news if its true. I was starting to get worried that the "A-rod debacle" was coming to a close.

    Bet they trade him. The FO couldn't possibly be stupid enough to let this soap opera continue another year.

    Yep, just like the said at the trade deadline that they wouldn't trade A-Rod. That was obviously a ploy to get better offers for him...oh wait that's right, the Yankees didn't trade him at all. Sometimes FO's make statements they intend to back-up, and not use it as a smokescreen. No matter what the Yankees say about A-Rod, people always take it as some sort of sign that they're moving him.

    And Cashman also said he wasn't going to sign Damon, and guess what? He did.

    Plus, get serious. A lot has happened with ARod and the Yanks since July 31st. That was a completely different situation for both player and team. Times change, so you can't equate what happened then to what is happening now.

    Finally, don't forget that Cashman said he will continue to field offers.

    Here's an intriguing option: Lou Piniella replaces Felipe Alou and Alex Rodriguez replaces Barry Bonds. A-Rod would play third for a year and move to short in '08 when Omar Vizquel's gone, and maybe the Yankees would take a package involving Jonathan Sanchez.
