Re: Biogenesis thread- more names to come
So it makes sense for A-Rod to stall the suspension as much as possible. He's paid $28 Million in 2013, $25 Million in 2014 and $21 Million in 2015. For every day that he pushes the suspension back into 2015, he saves 25% per day in lost salary. It's all monopoly money at this point, but from a dollar standpoint, it makes most sense to get paid now while the salary is higher and forfeit the money later when the salary goes down. I'd guess his agent is pushing for it to go that way. A rough calculation is that A-Rod would save around $2 Million in lost salary if he can finish out 2013 and push the suspension into 2015 by stalling through the appeals process.
