Madden @ NY Post: Yankees should cut A-Rod, eat $270 million

91

Bill, The idea that A-Rod's steroid use besmirches the Yankee brand is beyond ridiculous. This may be the team of Jeter and Rivera, but it is also the team of Clemens, Sheffield, Pettitte, Knoblauch, and Giambi, and now A-Rod as well. You could argue that no other franchise, not even the Canseco-Giambi A's, is so closely tied to the steroid era. It's hard to figure where you're coming from on this. In the rest of America, it's no surprise at all that yet another Yankee star turns out to be a juicer. For that matter, the payroll has been all roided up for years. Competing with an unfair advantage isn't a blight on the Yankee brand -- it is the Yankee brand. Jay
