Yankees Trying to Cancel A-Rod Bonuses
When Alex Rodriguez signed his contract with the Yankees in 2007, it was written in that he would receive bonuses when he tied the top home run hitters in the game.
At 654 homers, Rodriguez is just six homers away from Willie Mays. He's set to receive $6 million once he hits 660 to tie Mays. He then gets another $6 million if/when he ties Babe Ruth (714) and another $6 million if/when he ties Hank Aaron (755).
The Yankees are prepared to fight the players union, arguing that these incentives in his contract were signed under false pretenses.
Regardless of what happens, this situation gets uglier and uglier.
