With the coming out party of the Mitchell report clogging all the airwaves, Alex Rodriquez was still able to keep his face in the limelight. Remember Game 4 of the World Series? When it was supposed to be the Red Sox's time, Arod's agent publicly declared on during Game 4 that Arod would be opting out of his contract with the Yankees. Now, over a month later, Arod signs the biggest contract in MLB history the same day as the shadow of the Mitchell Report covers the game.
Arod admitted that opting out was a "debacle." MLB would love nothing more than Arod breaking all the hitting records and being the new poster boy of the game. For the record, Arod signed 10 years for $275 million with a chance to make over $300 million. By 2013, the all time homerun king will be wearing pinstripes.
