I think A-rod will not play for the Yankees in 2008. I think he will opt out and move on. I think it should and will be a lesson learned for Yankee fans. The way you treat the players has in impact and consequences. Rodriguez has been unfairly malingned by fans in New York. Players have choices too, and if they do not feel like they have been treated fairly or properly, more often than not they will leave. I would be shocked if A-rod stays in New York.
