All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

It's not official yet, but it looks like it's as good as a done deal. Ten years, $270 million. Supposedly, the Yanks are just waiting to announce it until after Mo is locked up.

The headline at the Post is A-Rod Crawls Back. The Daily News, which originally broke the story, has A-Rod and wife: we luv NY. And even the NY Times is reporting it: Alex Rodriguez Talks to Yankees Without Agent.

The Times also has this story: Yanks Should Treat Rodriguez the Way He Treated Them

This is the Yankees’ big chance to take whatever money they had penciled in for him and spend it on pitching and power and first base and a reasonable approximation of Scott Brosius at third base.

The Yankees’ management was cold-blooded about Joe Torre, making him twist for days, then finally forcing him to fly down to Florida to try to save his job. They should be no less cold-blooded toward Rodriguez.

He dumped on the Yankees and on his business by passively allowing Boras to drop An A-Bomb! From A-Rod! — John Sterling’s cloying call, used 54 times last season — during the final game of the World Series.

Sounds like it's too late, though: A-Rod is coming back.
