    I heard from a good source that The Marlins may try to pursue. They have the money to spend and they want to attract fans so they can get that new stadium somehow. The Marlins have a good nucleus and could trade off Miggy for an additional part. Plus, A-Rod has a home in Florida.

    If they offered several million dollars more per year than the next suitor, yes.

    San Francisco Giants? That would be a good fit for him IMO.

    He'd double their payroll.

    Very possible if he'd go.

    Yep, but they would still have one of the lowest payrolls in baseball even after that.

    That's the team that makes the most sense. With Bonds leaving, they need to not only replace his offensive production, but also his name value. Their offense will go from bad to horrifyingly awful without Bonds.

    Re: A-Rod opts out

    I've been running through scenarios of where ARod might end up and it really just dawned on me that he has to end up somewhere. Geez, that might have some impact. My money is still on the Angels. It makes a ton of sense for him to go to Boston, but I don't think they'll commit to enough years for Boras.

    Also, imagine if he does go to Boston and they don't win a World Series in his time there... talk about a curse.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Classy:

    Rodriguez's decision, announced by agent Scott Boras during Game 4 of the World Series, makes the third baseman eligible to become a free agent.

    Boras said he attempted to notify Yankees general manager Brian Cashman of the decision but couldn't reach him, so he left a voice mail.
    A-Rod and Boras just don't get it.

    They should have waited until Tuesday, at least.
