In case you missed it, here is A-Rod's retirement announcement…

From Fox Sports:

The relationship between Rodriguez and the Yankees is not ending badly. In fact, it is continuing, Rodriguez said, first with him playing one final game at Yankee Stadium on Friday, then remaining with the team as an ambassador, instructor and special advisor to principal owner Hal Steinbrenner.

Did he want to go? No. But the upside is he will be the highest paid "advisor" in the history of baseball. As he cried his tears turned to gold. Prediction: if the Marlins are willing to take him you will see him again.
