Alex Rodriguez hasn’t indicated if he will opt out his contract with the Yankees, but if he does his agent has ambitious plans. Scott Boras said in a radio interview he will tell suitors that A-Rod is the most valuable player in baseball history, will play until he is 45, and probably break the all-time homerun and hit records, reports ESPN.
Boras said that A-Rod is worth nearly $1 billion to a club’s television network and used the Yankees’ ratings, which have increased since his arrival, to prove his point. A-Rod has three years and $81 million left on his current contract but could probably earn more in free agency. He has until 10 days after the World Series to make a decision on whether to seek a new deal.
