    Toledo Mud Hens make offer to A-Rod...?

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Alex Rodriguez a Mud Hen?

    Spurred by an offhand remark from George Steinbrenner's son, the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens want in on the A-Rod sweepstakes.
    The Mud Hens playfully offered the prize free agent a deal Thursday a contract proposal that includes a bonus for hitting 75 home runs next year and leading them to 10 straight International League titles.

    Rodriguez recently opted out of his $252 million, 10-year contract with the New York Yankees. That prompted Hank Steinbrenner, son of the Yankees owner, to tell the New York Times: "Does he want to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee, or a Toledo Mud Hen?"

    The Mud Hens conjured up an offer to find out, said Jason Griffin, a spokesman for the Detroit Tigers' top farm team.

    Toledo created a Hall of Fame plaque of Rodriguez wearing a Mud Hens hat and sent a letter to his agent, Scott Boras.

    The deal stipulates that Rodriguez will have to compete for a spot with Toledo third basemen Mike Hessman, the league's most valuable player last season.

    "Would your client be willing to play a different position?" the letter asked.

    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Good for the Mud Hens. While I respect the storied history of the Yankees, the team's arrogance got old quite some time ago. I would think it would be hard to find a Non-Yankee HOF member who would say "I wish I could have gone in as a Yankee." Geez.

    Now that's funny. I love how the minor leagues are so much more fun. This is an example of having fun in baseball. I think we should see more of this stuff in the big leagues.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
